'Henry IV (Part I)'


Railway Institute


22nd - 27th February 1954


A. G. Revill & L. H. Titmuss

Our second production of 'Henry IV (Part I)' came in February 1954. This show was performed at the Railway Institute in Derby, at the time our regular venue.

It was usual at this time for the production teams of our shows to be made up from the same, relatively small, group of hard-working and highly skilled members. 1954 marked the arrival of Bill Titmuss as an active part of this team, co-producing this show and the preceding week's 'Hamlet' alongside the long-established director and performer George Revill.

We hope to be able to add more information and photographs from this production soon.
