Recovery on cards for small theatre
3:50pm Monday 3rd September 2012 in News
THE FUTURE of the world’s smallest theatre has been improving despite a slow start to the summer season.
Dennis Neale, founder of The Theatre of Small Convenience which is in Edith Walk, Malvern, had feared for its future after thieves stole lead from the roof last year while he recovered from throat cancer.
He had hoped for a strong summer season with his new show Fat Cat and the Yellow Cello.
Mr Neale said: “It has gone all right. It started slowly and I don’t know whether it was the Olympics or the bad weather but we struggled and I didn’t think we’d make it.
“But hopefully it has picked up and on Saturday we had good numbers.”
Mr Neale said he was also hopeful his health would make a full recovery too.
The show will be performed on demand on Saturday afternoons from 2pm to 5pm until November with The Tale of the Snowcake Man set to return for Christmas .
The theatre, which is based in a former Victorian gentleman’s toilet, has been running since November, 1999, and was entered into the Guinness Book of Records.
