The Royalty Theatre opened in 1840 and closed on the eve of war in 1938. During the 1880s, it was managed by Willie Edouin, who was one of many actor-managers in London at the time. Edouin's acting had earned him a large following. He starred in the plays at the Royalty, but also toured the country with his company of actors.
