Hello all from Canada,

About 1 1/2 years ago I started a thread looking for British and Irish theatre programmes (and posters).

I managed to acquire a few hundred items since then.

All of this is with the hope of one day opening a British and Irish theatre gallery in Canada showcasing 792 plays and musicals (to date - this will increase) I have seen in 39 trips to Britain and Ireland over the past 25 years.

The gallery will display posters (all of the approximately 600 I have so far have been professionally dry mounted), programmes, autographs, notebooks (I have kept since trip #1) and anything else theatre related to these productions.

I have recently set up a website (bare with me as I have never made a website before) but it does have a tab on it indicating the specific posters and programmes I am looking for.

If you have any of these items for sale please contact me through the email or contact tab on the website.

I am very specific though on items I want: it has to be from the same theatre in the same city with the same cast (some productions go on for years). Details of the dates I have seen the productions are listed on the website.

Thank you.

John Tracey in Canada

Hi John
I may have answered you before but here goes anyway.
I have a collection of programmes going back into the sixties. I don't have speciallically what you request but then I don't understand what your collection is supposed to be. If it is just what you personally have seen, then I don't think my collection will be of any use as I have seen much more than you have. But if you want to take a punt, I am willing to send them all to you - you will have to pay postage I'm afraid - and then I assure you , you will have an interesting collection.

Hi Lynette, if John isn't interested would you be interested in sharing your collection with another?

I too have some theate programmes.brouches I am willing to sell.

Just so you know, I am from Sydney, Australia however now live here in London (8 years) so admittedly a lot of the stuff is from there. That said, I did live in London for a period of time previously and so have some UK stuff to.
Don't we get to be happy? At some point down the line, don't we get to relax without some new tsuris to push me yet further from you!

Who dare tell the lambs in Spring what fate the later season brings?
