One of the most anticipated events of Manchester’s 2015 calendar is almost here.  The former Library Theatre Company are getting ready to open their first show in their new home, cunningly called HOME.

To mark the occasion we’ve created a little homage to our old friends on our Virtual Archive wall using some Library Theatre posters and photographs from our collections.

We are sure the company will continue their reputation for excellent theatre and challenging their audience.  This collection of reviews from a November 1965 production of Entertaining Mr Sloane shows that they have never been afraid to push boundaries.

If you’re passing by, pop in and take a quick look at our HOMEwarming selection.  All the images are taken from the Library Theatre collection held in Central Library.
