The Tower Archive
We hold records for every production we have put on since we were founded in 1932. With only a few exceptions we have cast lists and photographs for
the shows. Below are links to the indexes which list all the shows - you can find productions by their date, title, author or director.
Since 1932, the Company has presented the enormous total of over 1550 productions. But that figure
depends what you mean by "a production", so
here's a short explanation on how we count them.
Where we presented two or more plays in a single evening, we've counted these as separate productions. In most cases the casts were different, and sometimes there were different directors. Where we have remounted a production at another venue, or revived it at the same venue some time after the original, we've again counted these separately. We've included plays performed by other groups where we were the producer - i.e. did publicity, sold tickets and provided the technical back-up. We've not included productions where our theatre was let to other groups, or private productions where tickets were not on sale to the general public.
Note that until about 1970, Sunday performances were for members only (because of the Lord Chamberlain's regulations).
