  1. Hello,

    I’m a journalist at The Stage wanting to write a story on the new association.

    Please can someone drop me an email, and we can arrange a time to speak on the phone so I can get a few more details?

    Thanks very much,


  2. Hi, Paul Elsam suggested that I should contact you regarding my newly published book, ‘The Origins of the Potteries Victoria Theatre.’

    The books deals with the role of Stephen in the creation of the first permanent theatre-in-the round and could be of interest to the members of the Association.

    1. Hi Leslie,

      How very interesting – you obviously did not know when you wrote it that I was brought up in Longton and was in at the outset of the Vic – in fact I helped Stpehen install the seats, which I think came from another cinem) or perhaps from the Vic itself. Pehaps you would like to send me a review copy and I will get it reviewed on the site. Thanks for bringing this to my notice.

  3. I replied to Giverny a few days ago outlying the history of our involvement with Stephen, about the Scarborough weekend and particularly about the Manchester symposium and why we started the SJA. I received a nice acknowledgement this morning telling me that “The story should be published online in the first week of January and in print in the first issue we have in January.”
