Hi everyone! I'm going to be studying in London this summer, and want to soak up as much theatre as I can while I'm there. I'm familiar with student rush policies and discount opportunities in NYC, but I don't know a thing about how it works in the UK.

I wouldn't think that a student rush policy would honor someone from a different country, but if anyone could point me in the direction of discount offers for tickets I'd be very grateful!
