Duchess Theatre London West End
Opening on 25th November, 1929 The Duchess Theatre has one of the smallest proscenium arches in the West End theatres. The circle, which is somewhat narrower than the stalls, was also unusual for the time period. Notable productions at the theatre include, Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit in 1942, which transferred from the Piccadilly Theatre to St James’ Theatre before arriving at the Duchess Theatre where it completed 1,997 performances.
Bakersfield Mist is current showing at the Duchess Theatre before Made In Dagenham arrives later in 2014. Bakersfield Mist marks the return to the London stage of multi award-winner Kathleen Turner for the first time since her tour-de-force performance in Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. She performs opposite Olivier and Tony award-winner Ian McDiarmid (Life of Galileo, Faith Healer) directed by Evening Standard award-winner, Polly Teale. Inspired by true events, this new play by Stephen Sachs asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.
