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.

No. 1 public cultural space in Europe! Gorgeous variety of restaurants and bars, lots of power sockets and great wifi. Don't forget to check out the NT Bookshop!

Great place to go and grab coffee or a glass of wine. They lose a couple of stars for the dirty glasses I had on my last trip. I've never been in the theatre itself just in the rest of the building.

There's a lovely cafe area here where a coffee can be nursed for a significant amount of time whilst studying and overlooking the Thames path along Southbank.

Love this place free wi-fi, cafe, bookshop, but i has 1 downside during the winter is so hot and in summer its like sitting on the sun, they need to turn the A/C on during the busy period.

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.

Never actually been to a show here - but its one of my favourite places to photograph in London. Love the brutalist architecture.

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