This production of Antigone was performed at the New Theatre on St Martins Lane, London, which was built in 1903 by Sir Charles Wyndham. Sir Charles Wyndham employed the architect William G.R Sprague (1863-1933) to build his theatre. Mr Sprague had a successful career and was well known for his work as a theatre architect. During its lifetime, the theatre has been renamed twice. In 1973 it was renamed the Albery Theatre after the manager of the theatre, Sir Bronson Albery, who ran the theatre for many years. In 2006 the theatre underwent a major refurbishment and was renamed Noel Coward Theatre after the famous playwright.
