Welcome to the Loft Theatre Company’s online archive. Here you can find a complete list of past productions (many with accompanying photographs), a brief history of the company and a selection of other memorabilia.

A note about the photographs

On this site you will find photographs of all Loft shows since September 2000. However, coverage of earlier productions is patchy. The theatre has a paper archive containing photographs, programmes and press cuttings for almost every production in its 94-year history and these are in the process of being scanned into digital form, but it’s a mammoth task..

This is where you come in! If you have any photographs of Loft productions prior to September 2000 which you are able to scan, please do so and email them to the webmaster. Likewise, if you are able to advise details of casts and/or directors for past shows, please do so. The aim is to build up a complete record of the director and cast of every show in the Loft’s history.

Your help will be gratefully received.
