The Birth of the SJT: 14 July 1955

The Stephen Joseph Theatre was founded on 14 July 1955 when the Library Theatre made its debut in Scarborough.

To mark the occasion, I’ve launched the latest of my videos – The Birth of the SJT: 14 July 1955 – which asks what it would have been like to attend that opening night of the Library Theatre.

From descriptions of the experience and theatre to reactions to the play, the video offers a fascinating insight into the experience of seeing the debut of the UK’s first professional theatre-in-the-round company.

The Birth of the SJT: 14 July 1955 can be found on the Official Ayckbourn YouTube channel by clicking here – and please don’t forget to subscribe if you’ve enjoyed the video.
