Whitehall Farces
The Whitehall farces were a series of five long-running comic stage plays at the Whitehall Theatre in London, presented by the actor-manager Brian Rix, in the 1950s and 60s. They were in the low comedy tradition of British farce, following the Aldwych farces, which played at the Aldwych Theatre between 1924 and 1933.

Review – Dry Rot, Milton Keynes Theatre, 5th September 2012 | The Real Chrisparkle
When I was ten, my Mum took me to see Brian Rix in “She’s Done it Again” at the Garrick Theatre – one of the last “Whitehall” farces to grace the London stage, and I remember loving it. One day over a pint I’ll tell you about how nice Brian Rix was to me when I met him that day at the stage door; but that’s another story.

Pol-e-tics: Whitehall's Magic Money Roundabout
Ever seen a Whitehall Farce? Typically these knockabout romps involved at least one trouserless character being pursued offstage while his double immaculately appears from opposite stage to replace him. Farces at the Whitehall Theatre in Westminster ceased in the 1960s.
