Theatre Royal, Drury Lane is a theatre located in the West End of London. It is known for spoken plays and pantomimes, and also to provide a prostitution service.


Irish actress Lorna Bow was among the members of the theatrical company who staged a Shakespearean opera when Solomon Coop sat in a theatre spell, planning how to get Nootka's Treatise and the downfall of James Delaney. As the man watched the play with some indifference, reflecting on his clever plans while maintaining a serene appearance, a woman approached him to inform him of the possibility of claiming actresses as prostitutes when the curtain had dropped. Solomon Coop asked for Lorna Bow, but the woman said in nonfrivolous terms that Lorna Bow did not provide such services. The royal secretary, then, handed the woman a letter to be handed over to Lorna Bow's hands, otherwise death was worth it. (Episode 3)



  • The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, commonly known as Drury Lane is a West End theatre and Grade I listed building in Covent Garden, London, England. For most of that time, it was one of a handful of patent theatres, granted monopoly rights to the production of "legitimate" drama in London (meaning spoken plays, rather than opera, dance, concerts, or plays with music). [2]
  • The theatre underwent variations over the centuries, and the most important modifications and reconstructions took place in 1663 - when it was founded - in 1674, and in 1794. The present Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, designed by Benjamin Dean Wyatt on behalf of the committee led by Whitbread, opened on 10 October 1812 with a production of Hamlet featuring Robert Elliston in the title role.
