Welcome to Theatre Royal Haymarket Productions.
The Theatre Royal Haymarket is renowned for being a beautiful theatre and for playing host to the best actors, writers and directors during its three hundred years history.
The Theatre has a rich heritage of producing its own work and staging new writing, including the premieres of international classics such as Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance and An Ideal Husband.
In 2007, we were delighted to launch a new future for the venue with the establishment of a series of ambitious and successful seasons led by world famous directors.
The inaugural season was led by the celebrated theatre and opera director, Jonathan Kent whose productions included Wycherley’s The Country Wife, Edward Bond’s The Sea, and Marguerite – a world premiere from the composers of Les Misérables, Miss Saigon and Martin Guerre.
Season Two was artistically led by Sean Mathias who directed the acclaimed sell-out production of Beckett’s Waiting For Godot starring Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart, followed by Samuel Adamson’s adaptation of the Truman Capote novella, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Season Three was led by Sir Trevor Nunn. Sir Trevor directed the phenomenally successful Flare Path, as part of the Rattigan centenary, starring Sienna Miller, James Purefoy and Sheridan Smith. Sir Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead with Samuel Barnett and Jamie Parker followed by The Tempest starring Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Lyndhurst, and finally James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter starring Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley.
TRH Productions also acts as co-producers on other leading plays.

TRH Productions also produces overseas tours and productions. Due to the phenomenal success of Waiting For Godot, the show toured Australia and New Zealand, taking the Haymarket to previously uncharted territories.
The theatre’s successful co-production of The Last Confession starring David Suchet and Brian Bedford toured Canada, America and Australia throughout April – September 2014.
TRH Productions is committed to producing outstanding productions while continuing to identify and work with top new talent throughout the entertainment industry.
