This photo was taken just a short time before we moved shop to Pebble Mill – late 1960s/1970.
Some of the under-dressed cast of A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum. Top left the amazing Jenny Brewer, next to her Olive McCosh (I hope that’s right ) bottom Left, Sandy Sutton wife of the redoubtable vision-mixer Roger Sutton. This was BBC AmDram Society and producer David Shute caused quite a stir when he insisted that all the ladies auditioned in bikinis! The amazing cast won a rare 5 star rating from the Birmingham Post & Mail’s theatre critic. We had to re-stage the show some months later for a second week’s run. What a hoot!
Shutey got head-hunted away. Great loss.
