The Fortune Theatre located on Russell Street, Covent Garden in London, was opened in 1924 and stands on the site of the old Albion Tavern. 

In 2005 The Fortune Theatre London hosted the long running play The Woman in Black, which was adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the book of the same name by Susan Hill. 

The Fortune's original building plans were discovered by Richard L. Hay, who used the exact plans to design and build the Elizabethan Stage at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon. The Fortune Theatre, once so succinctly described as "This most intimate of theatres" first opened to the public on Saturday, 8th November 1924. Built on the site of the old Albion Tavern, it was the first London theatre to be built after World War I.
