In 1920, Eric W Pidduck, together with Laurence Steele and a group of amateur enthusiasts, came together to rehearse and perform a production of “Caste” to raise money for charity. This production was perfomed at The Empire Theatre, Longton on 17th February, 1921 and the seeds that would become The Repertory Players was born.
Whilst Eric’s Directing credits were restricted to The Roundabout in 1935 and Kick In in 1943 he was a prolific actor appearing in numerous productions until his retirement from The Rep stage in 1956.
