Historical amateur dramatics

Hi, Im not sure if this is the right place to enquire, so apologies in advance if so.
I am trying to find info on a distant relative. I have a newspaper cutting saying she belonged to the West Sussex players. She played in The Queen and the Rebels, I think early 60s, and Witness for the prosecution in 1959. Her name is Elizabeth Marriott.
Is there any kind of archive for past plays/actors and actresses in amateur dramatics? Or could you point in a direction where I might find more info, would love to know what other parts she played.
Many thanks,
Claire

Hi Claire,

I'm afraid I don't have any information on the West Sussex Players and I don't know of any archive for actors / actresses appearing in amateur theatre. Certainly in the early 60s there wouldn't have been digital records. I have found a website http://www.westsussex.info/theatre-groups.shtml West Sussex info which contains a section on theatre groups. I couldn't see the Players listed but they may have someone on staff who might remember?

I will post your query in the #Advice section of www.dramagroups.com asking anyone who is able to help to contact you directly via your email address.

I wish you luck in your search and would be interested to hear if you are successful in tracking your relative down.

Best Wishes,

Peter

Hi, I hope this is okay to post. You are all my last hope.
I really want to do the stage play of dinnerladies! By Victoria Wood. I know there are two out there. Does anyone know where I can go to ask about the rights? I have tried everything. I contacted David Graeme who is he authors but hes the wrong David Graeme. Has anyone had any luck tracking down the scripts or the rights for this?
Thanks in advance

Peter's response:

Hi Sarah,

I've had this query before from Thurrock Courts Players and as far as I am aware they couldn't find publishers details either. I shall put your question in the #Advice section of the www.dramagroups.com website and its associated Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages within the next 24 hours. I shall ask people to contact you directly if they can help or advise.

Best Wishes,

Peter
