In the city's tradition of relating street names to the works of William Shakespeare, Diana Court Diana, daughter to the widow in Shakespeare’s All’s Well that Ends Well.
The Shakespeare comedy holds a greater-than-usual significance for Stratford because it was one of the two plays produced for the Stratford Festival's the first season, 1953. Sir Alex Guinness and Irene Worth took the leading roles, and Diana was played by Beatrice Lennard. All three Toronto critics at the play’s opening had words of praise for Lennard’s Diana.
