History

The Theatre Royal Haymarket as a site for theatre dates back to 1720, opening on the 29th of December with a French play entitled La Fille a la Morte, ou le Badeaut de Paris. Other early plays included the successful nonsense play Hulothrumbo and The Beggars Opera (both 1729).

The late 18th to early 19th century saw incidents of tragedy strike the theatre as 20 people were crushed to death during a popular performance in 1974. In 1805 a stampede of hundreds of angry tailors descended upon the theatre in reaction to a play that satirised their trade.

The theatre as we know it today was built in 1821, with a very successful play of Our American Cousins running at the venue for 400 performances from 1862.

Plays and light comedies have generally always characterised the Theatre Royal Haymarket, with Oscar Wilde presenting many of his literary works on the boards of the venue such as An Ideal Husband in 1895, which was famously reprised 100 years later in a production directed by Peter Hall.

Popular plays throughout the early 1900’s were Mary Rose (1920), Yellow Sands (1926), Design for Living (1939) and John Gielgud’s early 1940’s season.

The later half of the 19th century saw works from writers such as Harold Pinter, Tennessee Williams, Terrence Rattigan, George Bernard Shaw and Tom Stoppard.

Recent notable productions have included a stage adaptation of When Harry Met Sally (2004), Hay Fever (2006) starring Judy Dench, On The Waterfront (2009) and hugely successful revival of Terrence Rattigan’s Flare Path starring Sienna Miller and Sheridan Smith, who won an Olivier for her involvement in the show.

The Theatre Royal Haymarket is currently home to One Man Two Guvnor’s, which opened in March 2012 following a successful run at the Adelphi.

In March 2014 the Theatre Royal Haymarket became home to the world stage premier of Fatal Attraction, directed by Trevor Nunn. The theatre then hosted Daytona and Great Britain.

After Great Britain closed in January 2015, Taken at Midnight ran at the Theatre Royal Haymarket followed by productions of Harvey, The Elephant Man starring Bradley Cooper and St James Theatre transfer, McQueen.

Pixie Lott is due to star in Breakfast at Tiffany's, which makes its debut at the theatre in June 2016.
