From Geoff Banks here are more 1960s photos from Little Theatre, Vale Road:

“The scene at the top has two actors that I don’t know on the left, then Joe Holroyd and Angela Day sitting. Then it’s my mother Iona Banks; she was born in 1920 in Trelogan and did a lot of TV drama from late 1970s to 1990. Far right is Thelma Gwilliam.

“The other production is Noel Coward’s ‘Blithe Spirit’; left to right are Iona and Angela as ghosts, next two I don’t know, and then Joe."

Thank you, Geoff. Keep 'em coming!


SUN 1st NOV 2009 UPDATE: Roger Hardwick has sent the following info: In the scene at the top, one of the actors that Geoff can't remember is David Williams. He did most of the painting and went on to work for Watts & Corry in Manchester who built the original sets for Coronation Street. David worked at Birmingham Rep from 1972 to when he retired in 2006.

Thank you, Roger!
