Theatre History

The Fortune Theatre was the very first London theatre to be built after World War I, and was designed by Ernest Schaufelberg.

It opened on 8 November 1924 with a production of Sinners by Laurence Cowen.

Famous faces that have played the Fortune stage since 1924 include Dirk Bogarde, Dame Judi Dench and Maureen Lipman, and the 1960’s revue Beyond the Fringe with Alan Bennett, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Jonathan Miller.

The Woman in Black, which has played at the Fortune since 1989, is by far the Fortune’s longest running show, continuing to scare audiences 8 times a week!
