New Writing: Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round

In 1976, the Library Theatre closed and in-the-round company moved to the former Westwood County Modern School, which became home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round.
Alan Ayckbourn, Artistic Director of the company since 1972, continued Stephen Joseph's ethos of promoting new writing and between 1976 and 1996, before the company moved to its present home the Stephen Joseph Theatre, the venue produced 232 plays of which 106 were new plays.
