History

Wyndham’s Theatre was originally designed by W.G.R. Sprague and was managed by actor Charles Wyndham, officially opening in 1899 with a performance of T. W. Robertson’s David Garrick. The venue continued to host dramas, including Mrs Dane’s Defence (1900) and Little Mary (1903).

Throughout the First World War, the theatre remained highly active, showing productions such as Raffles (1914), Dear Brutus (1917) and The Choice (1919). Following this, a successful production of Mademoiselle (1936) played, directed by Noel Coward. In 1939 the theatre was forced to close for the second outbreak of war.

In 1953, the theatre premiered Graham Greene’s The Living Room, followed by Sandy Wilson’s The Boy Friend (1954), which later transferred to Broadway. Subsequent productions included Godspell (1972-1974), Art (1996) and Up for Grabs (2002), starring Madonna.

Early productions in the 21st century included Moira Buffini’s Dinner (2003-2004), Democracy (2004), By the Bog of Cats (2004-2005), The Witches (2005), starring Ruby Wax, Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues (2005), As You Like It (2005), starring Sienna Miller and Heroes (2005-2006).

Denise Gough earned an Olivier Award in Duncan Macmillan’s play People, Places and Things (2016), which was conceded by The Truth (2016), No Man’s Land (2016) and a stage adaptation of The Kite Runner (2017).

David Tennant took to the stage in 2017 to star in Patrick Marber’s Don Juan in Soho, followed by Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, starring Audra McDonald. 2017 rounds off with Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham in Simon Stephens' Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle.
