A Brief History of The Mask

For over half a century Peterborough Mask Theatre has produced a varied repertoire of high quality theatre. To succeed in the heady world of local theatre is a testament to the enviable and consistent high level of Mask productions. Since the Company was formed back in 1947 it has worked to the basic rule of performing 'Plays of Merit'. The quality of the script leads to the quality of production

It all began with an advertisement in the Peterborough Standard newspaper on October 17 1947. The call went out for actors, actresses, technicians and others. They responded and the Peterborough Mask Theatre was formed.

    So sad to hear of this news. I had the brief pleasure of knowing Rich in the mid 90's. A gentleman and a scholar in the original and true sense of the phrase. RIP my dear chap.

    So sorry to only hear of this news now. Rich was a delight - an inspiration to act and socialise with, full of great experience, warmth and humour. Such a generous talent and fine man.
