Birmingham Stage Company


4 December 2011

In September 1992 I sat at the back of The Old Rep Theatre and watched our new patron Derek Jacobi being interviewed by Midlands Today for the launch of the Birmingham Stage Company as the new resident company of The Old Rep.  It was an exciting day. Yesterday I sat in the same chair at the back of the theatre and watched our production of THE JUNGLE BOOK unfold in front of a packed house who cheered it to the rafters. And it occurred to me that the level of excitement I feel today is the same as it was nearly twenty years ago when I sat in the back row watching the birth of the BSC. Theatre is extraordinary.
