Archives of Past Productions (1948-1977)
Episode 1: The Beginning, The Little Theatre, The End(?) 1948-77
“Faringdon District Dramatic Society (FDDS) (soon dropping the word "District”) started as a play-reading group in 1948, performing plays from the following year in the Corn Exchange. We then rented our own Little Theatre (a converted Nissan hut) from 1952 until it was demolished in 1972 to make way for a new housing estate. After that followed a long period of virtual inactivity with just 4 productions over 6 years. Read more FDS history ...
There are many productions during this period for which we have no programme but we do have photographs for almost all of them, courtesy of Wiltshire Newspapers Ltd. via Rosemary Church of the Faringdon & District Archaeological & Historical Society www.fdahs.org.uk.
Total number of productions during this 30-year period: 66
