The Aldwych Theatre was built in 1905, thanks to a generous donation by Seymour Hicks and Charles Frohman. It features beautiful design by W.G.R. Sprague. It seats 1200 and has a proscenium stage. From 1925 to 1933, the Aldwych presented Ben Travers' farces, including A Cuckoo In The Nest and A Cup of Kindness . For 21 years, from 1960 onwards, the Royal Shakespeare Company used Aldwych as their London base.
