Joe Spud gets £100,000 per week pocket money... he's not a friend of the Tories PPE committee... he's 12, with a rich dad. Same thing, but moving on...
Joe wants friends, so he enrols in his local comprehensive school in order to seek the one thing money can't buy him.

Based on paying FULL PRICE (no discount!) for tickets, site writers and contributing guests have ALSO created the colour-coded plans for "value for money," considering factors like views, comfort and value-for-money compared with other same-priced seats available.
Some notes for this extra event appear below. For a full discussion, opinions, reviews, notes, tips, hints and advice on all the seats in this theatre, visit the theatre page (link at the top of this page) and click on "BEST SEAT ADVICE" (on the left of your screen).
On the plans below:
Seats in GREEN many feel may offer either noticeable value, or something to compensate for a problem; for example, being a well-priced restricted view ticket. Any seats coloured LIGHT GREEN are sold at "premium" prices because the show producer thinks they are the best. The monkey says "you are only getting what you pay for" but uses this colour to highlight the ones it feels best at the price, and help everybody else find equally good seats nearby at lower prices.
Seats in WHITE, many feel, provided about what they pay for. Generally unremarkable.
Seats in RED are coloured to draw attention. Not necessarily to be avoided - maybe nothing specific is wrong with them, other than opinions that there are better seats at the same price. Other times there may be something to consider before buying – perhaps overpricing, obstructed views, less comfort etc.
Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.
To enable "social distancing," available locations may vary.
Extra notes are that the stage is fairly low, so in the stalls the front row isn't a bad bet with children. Second and third are OK too (if nobody too tall are in front). Go around or behind the premium seats, perhaps. The row in front if you have children, rather than further away. Further back, skip N back at top price, and take R over Q to save a few pounds. Row X at third price is worth taking over W if you have children with you, as it is on a step to help seeing over those in front.
The dress circle has premium seats in the centre of the front row, so take seats either side or behind for the same view.
The upper circle puts the central four seats at second price in rows A to D. Everybody should skip the front row, as should taller adults - the stalls row R will be more comfortable for the same cash. With smaller children, these seats may be worth it to give them a step up over the row ahead. On the other hand, move a few seats over, the view is similar and cheaper. Central row E will have a reasonable view for the same money as well. Furthest out, the restricted view seats are also well priced.
