St Andrew's Cathedral Players

The Cathedral Players were active from the 1950s after being established by Provost Leslie Pennell, until declining numbers brought about an end to their activities around 1967. Most, if not all, members of the Players were members of the Cathedral congregation. Some of the regular performers in the 1960s included Barbara Hepburn, Margaret [Meg] Brown and Maureen and Jimmy Pringle.

Performances were generally held in Church House, Kenneth Street, or in the Arts Centre (then in Farraline Park) although a performance of Murder in the Cathedral (T. S. Eliot) was held in the Cathedral itself in November 1964. This was produced by Maureen McIlwraith, and raised £70 towards the restoration of Oban Cathedral. Other performances were generally of one-act plays.

It is not known which stage production is represented in this picture.
