The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

David Thompson

David participated in 30 productions at the Barn.

We were sad to hear of the death of David Thompson (‘the older’) at the end of April, in a nursing home in Harpenden where he had been living in recent years. After a career as a School Inspector, David came to the Club around 1990 and was soon directing plays (ten in all over the years) including Steel Magnolias (1992), Single Spies (1992), and particularly successful productions of Racing Demon (1996) and Bedroom Farce (1999). He worked many times as a set builder and occasionally decided to act as well, the last time in 2008 as a member of the U-Boat crew in Dad’s Army.

A gentle and genial companion, David was always interested in the Club’s activities, and was a knowledgeable theatre buff. He served on Council as Marketing Director for several years. As regular sup- porters of many of the Club’s events, David and Sybil made a wide circle of friends here.

David will be missed and we send our deepest condolences to Sybil and the family.
