When did Theatre Royal Haymarket open?

The Theatre Royal Haymarket was built in 1720, first opening as the ‘Little Theatre in the Hay’. The venue struggled as it was illegal to stage plays, or by simply ignoring the law and doing it in secret. The Haymarket survived by doing a little of both.  During the Blitz, the Haymarket was watched over by actor John Gielgud, who set up living quarters in one of the dressing rooms to act as fire warden. Actors including Ian McKellen, Peter O’Toole, Patrick Stewart, Judi Dench, Helen Mirren and Maggie Smith have all performed at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
