WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Blade Runner meets Gotham in dark, dystopian thriller Venice Preserved.
Under the shadows of darkness, an impoverished nobleman and a senator’s daughter marry in secret, and are soon disinherited by her oppressive father. Feeling discontented, Jaffeir joins the underground rebellion against the corrupt leaders of his failed city state – but will the revolution succeed, or is it doomed to die?
Venice Preserved is a dark masterpiece and breath-taking love story. Directed by Prasanna Puwanarajah (who recently appeared in Doctor Foster, Patrick Melrose and Absolute Hell, National Theatre), this production draws on all the noir elements of an 80s graphic novel to create a dark, dystopian thriller.
Get return coach travel and a ticket to the show on Friday 24 May for only £20!

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
COACH PICK-UP INFORMATION: LONDON
The coach will pick up from Melton Street near Euston Railway Station at 3.15pm on Friday 24 May. There will a Mono Box representative who will mark you off on the register. The coach will be leaving as close to 3.15pm as possible, so please arrive in plenty of time. You do not need to show a ticket to board the coach but we will need your name! We ask that all people travel by coach.
ARRIVAL AT THE RSC
The journey will take approximately 2-3 hours (depending on traffic) so you should arrive in Stratford-upon-Avon for 6.15pm at the latest, allowing time for food/drinks etc. before the show. The coach will drop you off outside of the RSC building.
Your tickets will be held at our Box Office ready for collection on arrival to the RSC. Please quote your name or show your order confirmation email to collect your tickets.
Venice Preserved is in the Swan Theatre and starts at 7.30pm. We’re currently waiting on a confirmed running time, but the show will include an interval, and should last for no longer than 3 hours. Please make sure to take your seats in plenty of time, as latecomers may not be admitted until a suitable point.
The RSC Marketing team will be filming audience vox-pops after the show has finished. It would be great if you could come and chat to the team after the show and answer a couple of questions and share your thoughts! They’ll be positioned in the colonnade between the Swan Theatre and RSC Shop.
COACH PICK-UP INFORMATION: STRATFORD-UPON-AVON
The coach will pick you up outside the Swan Theatre at approximately 10.45pm. It will drop you back in London at Melton Street by Euston Station.
We’d love to hear about your visit – tweet us @TheRSC and @TheMonoBox with #RSCVenice and share your day with us.
A KIND NOTE
If you are unable to make the performance closer to the time please try and allocate your ticket to a friend or peer. We are a small team and in order for events like this to happen we rely on people's commitment and honesty. Not turning up will deny someone else of a place and it makes us really sad. And, we will remember you and it may affect selecting you for future opportunities.
