Pull up a bar stool and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of a 1590s tavern, from the Swan Theatre.
The Fair Maid of the West is a music-filled Elizabethan comedy centered around pub landlady Liz Bridges (Amber James). Adapted and directed by Isobel McArthur after Thomas Heywood, the production is set in a pub in 1598 Plymouth.
If you're sitting on the ground level, in rows A, B, and C on either side of the stage, or row A in the centre you can enjoy our pub-style seating on bar stools, chairs and benches.
The seating was donated to us by Stratford’s famous The Dirty Duck pub, following a recent refurbishment.
The show’s designer Ana Inés Jabares-Pita said: "Isobel and I wanted to create an immersive and unforgettable experience for the audience, transforming the Swan auditorium into a giant pub where everybody is welcome.
"The Dirty Duck is a Stratford-upon-Avon institution, much-loved by visiting acting companies and residents, and we’ve managed to recycle some of their old furniture, including bar stools, tables and chairs."
