Biographical history

Maurice Stewart had acted and possibly directed productions at the Rep.
Dundee Repertory Theatre was founded in 1939 out of a collaboration between Robert Thornely who had managed the last touring company to perform at Dundee and who was looking for a home for his professional company and the amateur company the Dundee Dramatic Company. The first theatre was housed in a disused jute mill. After the premises were destroyed by a fire in 1963 the company moved to a church building on Lochee Road. This served as the theatre's home until the new Dundee Rep Theatre was opened at Tay Square in 1982.
