An Enemy of the People Tickets – Duke Of York’s Theatre

“What is truth without power?”

Matt Smith returns to the West End stage at the Duke Of York’s Theatre to star in Thomas Ostermeier’s bold reimagining of Henrik Ibsen’s critically acclaimed play, An Enemy of the People.

The seeds of doubt spread quicker than disease in Ibsen’s thought-provoking play about truth in a society focused on money and power.

After Dr. Stockmann makes an unbelievable discovery in his local baths about the healing waters there, he holds the town’s future in his hands, but people with everything to lose from his discovery refuse to accept his findings. Barriers are broken as the battle goes way beyond contaminated water in this contemporary production as Ostermeier shows us why this perennial class will be forever relevant.

Celebrated director Thomas Ostermeier makes his West End debut in this iconoclastic production of An Enemy of the People at the Duke of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season from February 6th, 2024.

The Duke of York’s Theatre is a small West End venue which sits on three levels and has a capacity of 642 seats. Due to the she small size of the auditorium certain seats have slightly restricted views of the stage (depending on the production), so it is recommended to study the seating plan in detail prior to purchase as this can benefit both the price you pay for your ticket and the overall experience within the theatre.

Premium seats in the theatre are located towards the front and centre of the Stalls, around rows E and F. Sitting too close to the stage is not recommended as it sits quite high and you will have to look up throughout the entire play.  Seats at the rear are slightly restricted from the overhang from the Royal Circle which should also be noted however this is usually reflected in the price. Seats in the Royal Circle however offer excellent and unrestricted views from an elevated position and are recommended.

Good value can be found in the Row H bench on the third level in the Upper Circle which is ideal for bargain hunters looking to secure last minute theatre tickets or cheap tickets to An Enemy Of The People as despite being situated towards the rear of the theatre, they offer good overall sight-lines and are usually very reasonably priced. The Upper Circle also has some seats with restrictions but offers good value compared to some other seats within the venue.

Where Are The Best Value Tickets At The Duke Of York’s Theatre Situated?

There are three tiers in the theatre with the best seats located unsurprisingly in the front and centre of the stalls on the ground floor and dress circle one level up. The seats in the upper circle are usually priced accordingly which will save money however it is worth checking the different price bands for value and whether these seats have a clear view of the stage before you book.

Should I Avoid Booking Tickets At The Duke Of York’s Theatre That Have A Restricted View?

This will depend on the production and how severe the restrictions are. All three levels of the venue do have seats that feature restrictions to the view of the stage so when booking tickets at the Duke Of York’s Theatre it is highly recommended that you study the seating before purchase first to ensure not just that you are comfortable with the view but also that you are getting value for money for your ticket. Some of the seats in the rear stalls for example have severe restrictions from pillars yet are priced on par or sometimes even more expensive than clear-view seats in the upper circle. Restrictions in both the dress circle and the upper circle tend to be on the sides so where the action is taking place on stage will determine how bad the restriction is. Centrally located seats in the Duke Of York’s are usually a pretty safe bet.
