What we can offer: Exhibitions


(See here for information on Talks and Workshops Offered)

Part of the work of Unfinished Histories is locating, documenting and placing archive material associated with alternative theatre:

>Posters and fliers


>Company and production photos

>Unpublished and out of print scripts

>Plays, books and articles from the period

We are accruing a substantial amount of this memorabilia and are able to offer theatres, colleges and libraries the opportunity of commissioning an exhibition from us for their community and art spaces.

Exhibitions curated to date include:

We specialise in exhibitions featuring original materials from the period. We can also produce facsimile and panel-based exhibitions. Every exhibition is accompanied by an extensive events programme engaging volunteers and local communities, including talks, discussions, staged readings, workshops and performances.
