TitleVal Lorraine Archive
DescriptionProfessional papers of Val Lorraine. The collection mainly comprises scripts and production information for Lorraine’s acting work from the mid-1970s to the late 1990s, but also scripts submitted to and workshopped by The Playwright’s Company in the 1980s (VAL/1 and /3 respectively). Lorraine’s involvement with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre Club is seen in a series of newsletters from 1950s to 1970s and correspondence from the late 1950s and early 1960s (VAL/2). Fifteen scripts in the collection were lacking provenance and have therefore been grouped together (VAL/5), they may relate to Playwrights Company submissions or may have been kept from Lorraine’s acting work. There is little personal material within the collection, save a collection of postcards from her children within her research notes (VAL/4). As an avid theatre-goer it is perhaps unsurprising that the collection contains a selection of posters and programmes from productions attended by Lorraine, mostly in and around her Bristol home.
