Duke of York's Theatre, London West End

The Duke of York's Theatre is currently showing Goodnight Mister Tom.

The Duke of York's Theatre in London, UK, opened on 10 September 1892 with Wedding Eve, was built for Frank Wyatt and his wife, Violet Melnotte. Initially called the Trafalgar Square, the name was shortened to Trafalgar in 1894 and the following year became the Duke of York's to honour the future King George V.

The Ambassador Theatre Group bought the theatre in 1992 and this coincided with London's hottest ticket - The Royal Court's production of Ariel Dorfman's Death and the Maiden. A host of successes followed including Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show celebrating its 21st Birthday and the hugely successful Royal Court Classics Season in 1995.

The Duke of York's has played host to the Royal Court and ATG's highly acclaimed co-production of The Weir, which ran for over 2 years and won the 1999 Olivier Award for Best New Play. It has also hosted a sellout run of Stones In His Pockets, winner of the 2001 Olivier awards for Best Comedy and Best Comedy Actor.
