Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Glasgow Repertory Theatre, a theatre company in Glasgow, Scotland, was founded in 1909 by Alfred Wareing (1876-1942). Most plays were performed at the Royalty Theatre, Glasgow and the Alhambra Theatre. The aim was to encourage the initiation and development of a purely Scottish Drama. It was a 'Stock Company' with permanent actors. It was financed by the Scottish Playgoers' Company, a limited company. It was run on a subscription basis. In the four years of its existence it produced over 35 new Scottish plays. The Theatre folded at the outbreak of the First World War. The remaining funds helped to finance the Scottish National Players.
