History of Richmond Theatre

By Shiona Walker

We’re real fans of Richmond Theatre. As well as putting on really high quality drama, it also plays a pivotal role within its community and is one of Richmond’s prettiest features (even if it can’t compete with the park for size). It really is a special place and - judging by how well it’s done in the film-location stakes - this is clearly something that numerous Hollywood film directors have picked up on. There’s also something quite neat about the fact that the theatre reopened in 1903 with J M Barrie’s play Quality Street, and that 100 years later, in 2003, they filmed Johnny Depp playing Barrie himself in Finding Neverland here at the theatre. Lots more fab facts and fun to follow in this lovely little infographic we’ve done up for you below...
