Thank you to Dorothy Addison (née Jenkins) for sending me the photograph above of her school drama group, taken during a performance at the Gateway Theatre in 1952.  Most of the girls in the performance were in class 2B2.

 Gateway Theatre

"The photo was taken at the Gateway Theatre in Leith Walk, year in 1952.  It was our school drama group.  Most of the girls are from our class 2B2.

I have absolutely no idea what the play was called.  All I remember is that it was a mime.  I am fourth from left, I believe the girl on the floor was stabbed or something like that."
