I attended a matinee of Cleansed, the Sarah Kane directed by Katie Mitchell at the Dorfman, and came out fried, troubled, mostly numb. It was staged 'end-on' rather than 'in-the-round', which augmented the production's painterly feel: a bit like an update of Goya's Disasters of War maybe, lacquered over with that muted, slow, spacious, austere, sober sense of precision characteristic of Mitchell's work. The physical violence is balletic, constant, and extreme; the love and hope which exists in the gaps is filamental and fragile; and despite the fact it's all simulation, and it can't escape being simulation, it kind of accumulated in me, over the course of the ninety minutes, a mounting sadness, horror, and ultimately apathy, which is close to the "too muchness" of depression. I'm not sure the tenderness broke through. It's beautiful, and benumbing, and I kind of bounced off the surfaces of it. At time of writing there are Friday Rush tickets available and wd recommend it for Mitchell's gimlet eyed style and Kane's raw knuckle writing.

Go there as often as possible. First of all the architecture is interesting from the "brutalist" period of excessive use of concrete. The Architect was one of Brutalism's great advocates Denys Lasdun who also designed the Royal College of Physician's building up in Regents Park. Loathe it or hate it this style of architecture is "different" The National Theatre is an amazing place to wander around in and the acoustic design is really good. Many of our great thespians have played out roles there and many eminent voiceovers I talk to see performing their often as one of their "rites of passage" Great building well worth visiting.

Excellent venue for spending the day as a freelancer. Quiet and spacious, free easy to access WiFi, lots of available sockets and a nice reflective, conducive atmosphere.

This is my favourite theatre. The views are great for all seats, and the productions are always of a good standard. If you book early they offer good discounts, and if you come by on the morning of the show you an pick-up a good discount if there are any leftover tickets.

The building looks old and decrepit, but it's actually very comfortable inside. Not mentioning the great plays.

Architecture you'll love or hate. Go inside for a wander. It's a time warp in a good way and worth a wander around

Lots of seats in the breakout areas on level 1 and 2. The venue puts on a range of plays and the occasional musical. Note there is very little space inside the Theatre between seats. You must check in all bags and rucksacks into the free cloakroom
