Aldwych TheatreWith the Waldorf Hotel sandwiched in between them, the Aldwych and Novello (formerly the Strand) theatres were originally built to work as a pair. The Aldwych is probably most noted for being the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company (from 1960 to 1982), and for Ben Travers' famed Aldwych Farces, which played here from 1925 to 1933. Previous notable productions include Noel Coward's Private Lives starring Joan Collins and Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf starring Diana Rigg and David Suchet.
