The Deck Chair Theatre operated from 1984 – 2012. During that time it produced over 100 performances. The mounted posters in this collection represent just some of the plays. The Fremantle History Society worked for over 12 years to save the substantial archives of the theatre and the majority of materials are now held by the State Library of WA. Also held are digitised copies of audio visual materials which the Society was able to digitise with the help of a grant from the WA History Foundation. The posters in this collection are duplicates of posters now at the State Library and we are offering them for sale by way of a silent auction.
