Theatre History

The Harold Pinter Theatre originally opened as the Royal Comedy Theatre on 15 October 1881. Designed by Thomas Verity, the opening production was an opera comique called The Mascotte, with music by Edmond Audran and words by Alfred Duru and Henri Chivot. Soon after, in 1884, the venue was renamed as the Comedy Theatre.

On 24 October 2011 the venue was renamed again, this time to the Harold Pinter Theatre, celebrating the work of British playwright Harold Pinter.
