Project Description

The Picture House opened in 1921, and the Dramatic Section moved here from the Co-operative Hall, for three years, 1928-30. The first production was Milestones, by Arnold Bennett and Edward Noblock, which had large audiences for three nights. Subsequent years saw productions of A Bill of Divorcement, and Nine-Forty-Five, which were less successful, making it necessary to find a less expensive hall.

The Little Theatre returned to the Picture House again, in the late 1970s and 1980s, performing five more plays there, during a period of temporary homelessness.
