Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Celebrating 100 years of The REP

A little over 100 years ago, Sir Barry Jackson opened the Birmingham Repertory Theatre at the site of the current Old Rep on Station Street in Birmingham.

Fast-forward to the present day and The REP can lay claim to have started the careers of such theatrical luminaries as Albert Finney, Sir Laurence Olivier and David Suchet among many others.

I devised this campaign to support the reopening of The REP at its Broad Street site now linked to the iconic Library of Birmingham.

A sumptuous publication was produced, in addition, to celebrate the success of the REP over the preceding century. The book takes a look at The REP's colourful history, through a number of artifacts from the theatre's archive, across four topics – Station Street to Stratford via Malvern; The Detail's in the Design; Drama Queens; and Hidden Histories.
