The Old Auditorium & I

This image from the Internet in 2010 brought back a slew of memories circa the date on the wall, 1952, but alas, not many faces. I do recall my directors, Joy Coghill and Sydney Risk, who are now icons in Canadian Theatre, and an aspiring actor -- Don Franks, who actually became one. After I saw the photograph I discovered that it had emerged from obscurity as part of a complete restoration of the Old Auditorium at UBC. Christopher Whitney was kind enough to give me a tour of the renovation in June, 2010. Walking on stage again, and seeing my name was a curious feeling and only just in time. A few months later and the "David" had been removed to make way for an air grille.
