One of Covent Garden’s more intimate theatres, the Duchess has hosted some huge hits — Harold Pinter’s The Caretaker in 1960, Oh! Calcutta! throughout the 1970s, Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen in 1999—as well as a famous failure: The Intimate Revue of 1930 closed having completed only around half of the opening night performance.
In recent years, it has had far more successes than flops, with a varied and imaginative roster of new plays and spirited revivals, including Mark Rylance in Endgame, Dominic West in Butley and Lenny Henry in Fences.
