The Harold Pinter Theatre

The Royal Comedy Theatre opened in 1881 but soon lost its regal forename, becoming the Comedy Theatre. For years it was at the cutting edge of the West End, presenting the UK premieres of Miller's A View From the Bridge and Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. It also ran a theatre club which, by presenting exclusive performances of plays that had been banned by the Lord Chamberlain's Office, helped to rob that office of credibility, and soon killed off the British government's censorship of theatre. In 2011, it paid tribute to the late Harold Pinter by taking his name, and despite the occasional flirtation with musicals, presents mostly straight drama.
