Touring programmes

Scope and Content

This sub-class contains programmes and two promotional flyers for touring and provincial productions in which RD was involved. The only exception is FRD1/3/1/19, a programme for a 1931 London production of O'Neill's Desire Under the Elms with which RD had no obvious involvement, but which was stored with the other touring programmes. The rest of the programmes cover RD's his very early days in repertory theatre as a teenager, his work with James Bernard, his involvement in the Frank Benson Company during the 1920s, and later productions which he produced himself or in which he played the lead. Where information about RD's role is included in the programme, it has been noted in the catalogue description.
