In 1884, actor-manager Charles Dillon set out to build Stratford’s first permanent playhouse. With James George Buckle as his architect, Dillon applied for a licence to open a theatre, which, after some objections, was granted. Dillon himself starred in the lead role of the first play ever presented at the theatre: Lytton Strachey’s Richielieu, which opened on 17 December 1884.

Fast forward to the present day and Theatre Royal Stratford East is led by Artistic Director Nadia Fall and has a strong focus on new writing.
