The film adaption won Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTAs, and the theatre version of the novel has received critical acclaim.
'Kidnapped as a teenage girl, Ma has been locked inside a purpose built room in her captor’s garden for seven years,' reads the theatre description of the play.
'Her five year old son, Jack, has no concept of the world outside and happily exists inside Room with the help of Ma’s games and his vivid imagination where objects like Rug, Lamp and TV are his only friends.'
'But for Ma the time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside Room.'
The show is running from June 23 to July 22, and tickets are still available, so get booking!
