He mentions his parents, who were involved in the group during it’s first productions, and how he came to join the Thalians from the Hatfield amateur dramatics society, during the Welwyn drama festival. He talks about performing at the Embassy Cinema, which closed in 1983, then goes on to mention the old rehearsal space, Lawrence Hall, which has also since closed.
