Gate HQ has a paper archive that goes right back to the theatre’s very first days.
To mark our 40thanniversary year, in the summer of 2019, Madhia Hussein and Yunique Enim Aduousei from Royal Holloway University began working with us to unpack our treasure trove of theatrical history and re-tell the story of the Gate from 1979 – now.
Since then, we’ve been sharing their findings online through our digital project #40yearsin40weeks, celebrating exciting productions, artists’ memories and unearthed mementos from the Gate’s history.
Now – many weeks later – we’re delighted to share the complete project with you. Scroll below to experience the full timeline of #40yearsin40weeks and discover the plays, people and stories that have shaped the Gate’s journey.
Watch this space to see how some of this work has been reimagined by our Young Associates too…
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project including Madhia Hussein, Yunique Enim Aduousei, Dan Rebellato, Emma Digby, Aliya Siddique, Clare Nugent and Emma Pritchard.
