Scottish Theatre Archive

I spent most of yesterday buried deep in the Special Collections Department of Glasgow University Library. The 12th floor houses the Scottish Theatre Archive which is currently home to about 200 boxes/files of TAG's historical information. This is, as yet uncatalogued, but Donella Stirling (a firm friend of TAG/Citizens') and myself were granted access to the bowels of the store room to trawl through our papers.

Our work formed the next stage of a mammoth hunt for the names of all the people who have worked for TAG in the past - which we are gathering in advance of our 40th birthday party at the end of August.

The only problem was uncovering too many distracting and interesting stories and photos. I think a few more trips will be on the cards.
