Studio Theatre Ltd: Share CertificateThis page illustrates a share certificate for Studio Theatre Ltd, donated to the Stephen Joseph Theatre in 2015 by the family of one of the theatre’s first season playwrights, Miss Joan Winch.
When Stephen Joseph founded Studio Theatre Ltd in 1955, one of its main aims was to raise funding for an in-the-round theatre company. Towards that end the company issued ‘A’ and ‘B’ share certificates to a value of £1,000; 50 ‘A’ shares at the value of £10 each and 500 ‘B’ shares at the value of £1 each were made available. Amongst the investors was Stephen’s mother, the actress Hermione Gingold.
