Black Country Theatres


Sorry, this item is not currently available.

Written by Ned Williams with a foreward by Ken Dodd. This book tells the story of the Black Country's theatres. The curtain rises to reveal that many Black Country towns had at least one theatre, and many were visited by travelling theatre companies and portable theatres before permanent ones were built. The opening of the Dudley Hippodrome in 1938 provides a climax to the story, but by the end of the show only The Grand, Wolverhampton survives. Meanwhile the plot reveals the existence of theatres in many unexpected places.
