This is the story of Arthur’s work with Peter Cheeseman, Director of the Victoria Theatre, from 1976 to 1986, when Arthur’s play ‘St George of Scotia Road’ was the opening production for the New Victoria Theatre. TV interviews and sequences with Arthur and the actors who worked with him, give an engaging insight into his writing and how his plays were realised for the stage.  Film and recordings of Arthur talking about the plays and characters, photos, programmes, designs for stage sets and character paintings for the actors (preserved in the Victoria Theatre Collection) bring Arthur’s theatre work to life.

DVD 80 minutes; screening 40 minutes.

Presented by Emeritus Professor Ray Johnson.

Free entry with bucket collection.  

Cinema located on first floor – regrettably no disabled access.
