Current shows at the Aldwych Theatre:

Wolf Hall

Wolf Hall Hilary Mantelʼs prize-winning novels about the rise of Thomas Cromwell through the ranks of British poiltics to the right hand of Henry VIII have been hailed as a landmark in British culture. Mike Poultonʼs thrilling stage adaptations, directed by Jeremy Herrin and enthusiastically supported by Mantel herself, opened to rave reviews in Stratford-upon-Avon.  Now these 'rich and riveting' (Mail on Sunday) plays of power, passion and politics in Henry's court transfer to the Aldwych Theatre for a strictly limited London season. Wolf Hall is the first part of Mantel's Cromwell series (she's presently working on the third) and its events directly precede those of Bring Up The Bodies.

Presenting a particularly grand, highly decorative face to the world on London’s famous Aldwych, this theatre is probably best known for its infamous 1925-1933 Aldwych Farces, which raised the rafters and caused a series of scandals with plays like A Cuckoo in the Nest, Rookery Nook and A Cup of Kindness. Laurence Olivier's A Streetcar Named Desire, starring Vivien Leigh, caused a stir in 1949. The RSC took over the premises in late 1960 and made history several times over in the next 21 years. The Wars of the Roses and Nicholas Nickleby enjoyed great critical acclaim and the venue has hosted a wealth of famous actors. Sir Peter Daubeny’s famous World Theatre Season brought the best of world theatre to the city. Lloyd Webber's Whistle Down the Wind played here and Fame ran from 2002 to ’06, after which the British version of Dirty Dancing took the stage. And like many West End theatres, it’s apparently haunted! Buy great value Aldwych theatre tickets here…
