Dennis Eddowes

Dennis Eddowes directed our seventh production of 'The Taming Of The Shrew' in March 1972.

Staged at the old Derby Playhouse theatre in Sacheveral Street this was a fine production with an excellent cast.

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