Duchess Theatre

Duchess Theatre London

Just because the Duchess is one of the smallest and youngest of the West End theatres don’t be fooled into thinking it doesn’t have a history of big shows and big stars.

The Duchess opened its doors on the 25th of November 1929 with a production called Tunnel Trench, which was a play that featured Emlyn Williams in the cast.

The incredible interior has remained intact since 1934 and was designed by Mary Wyndham Lewis, the wife of J B Priestley.
