The Orange Tree In Richmond

Another gem of a theatre with an interesting programming policy. There is always lots of new writing here but this theatre’s speciality recently has been the presentation of rarely performed works from the early twentieth century. In recent years we have had an eye-opening production of Sheppey by Somerset Maugham, a wonderful, vibrant production of Rattigan’s French Without Tears and a trio of early plays by George Bernard Shaw ( Widowers’ Houses, The Philanderer, Misalliance ), directed with great panache by Paul Miller. The place is tiny. The tickets are not expensive. How do they do it ?
