Past Productions

Welcome to our extensive archive of past productions

You can browse details of every club production from 1937 to the present day. The very minimum you should find will be the name of the play and author, the venue and dates of the performances, and names of cast, director and stage manager.
Other listings also include photographs of performances, cast members, posters and flyers, programmes and reviews. Play titles accompanied by an * were premières.

With nine decades of productions to browse, we have divided these productions into nine separate sections as listed below. Follow any decade for a full listing of plays performed. You then have the option of browsing by the year or the play title.


1937-1939          1947-1949          1950-1959          1960-1969          1970-1979

1980-1989          1990-1999          2000-2009          2010-2016


There are a number of past productions where we have no photographs. If any former member of the club can help fill any gaps, we'd love to hear from you.


Many thanks to all Mercators, past and present, whose memories and anecdotes were invaluable for this archive, and particularly to Douglas Currie, who gathered together a wealth of material for our Golden Jubilee book and who continues to act as club archivist.

Thanks also to Walter Hampson for his kind permission to include his photographs of recent productions.  

         
Many of the images from early years were taken by amateur photographers with basic pre-digital cameras, so the standard does vary. Some images were scanned from original photographs or newspaper clippings. The temptation to attempt “improvements” using modern image editing programmes was resisted in the cause of preserving the period integrity of the original images.
