Sections available in Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

Playhouse Pit

  • 52 seats
  • Rows A-D

  • The Pit offers an intimate and close-up experience. These seats are directly in front of the stage, providing a ground-level view that immerses patrons in the performance.
  • The Pit's proximity to the action makes it a popular choice for theatregoers who enjoy a more involved and engaging perspective.
  • However, legroom might be slightly restricted due to the traditional bench-style seating, so it is best suited for those who prioritize closeness over comfort.

Playhouse Lower Gallery

  • 134 seats
  • Rows A-C

  • The Lower Gallery offers a balanced vantage point, combining good elevation with a comfortable distance from the stage.
  • This section is raised above the Pit and provides a clear view of the entire performance, making it an excellent choice for those who want a broad perspective without being too far removed from the actors.
  • The seating is more structured and comfortable than in the Pit, with individual seats that offer better legroom and personal space. The Lower Gallery's central rows offer the best views.

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse Upper Gallery

  • 167 seats
  • Rows A-D

  • The Upper Gallery is the highest seating area, providing a bird's-eye view of the stage. While these seats are the furthest from the performance, they still offer a good overall view due to the theatre's intimate size.
  • The Upper Gallery is ideal for those looking for a budget-friendly option, as these seats are typically less expensive.
  • However, the elevation and steepness may not be suitable for patrons with vertigo or limited mobility. The front rows of the Upper Gallery provide the clearest views, avoiding potential obstructions from safety rails.
