Brighton Little Theatre - 70 years on
Seventy years ago in the darkest days of the war, the year of Dunkirk, Brighton Little Theatre began, and is still delighting audiences with its quality productions in its unique, intimate theatre building. One WW2 poster admonished the population to: "Stay calm & carry on", and perhaps that is just what Brighton's lovers of the stage were endeavouring to do in 1940.
It is continuing its 70th season with Romeo & Juliet, 22nd to 26th June, in Clarence Gardens. It then travels to repeat the play at the Minack Theatre, Cornwall, 5th to 9th July, and then returns with it to the grounds of Lewes Castle 21st to 24th July.
