Troupe Theatre Company
Founded in Cape Town by Fiona Ramsay, Richard E. Grant and Henry Goodman in 1980, also including Neil McCarthy. *** They were initially drawn together by a common interest in communal working methods and a desire to do a type of theatre that deviated from the traditional commercial fare. They had no funding or administration of their own, being purely a performance group and dependent on sponsoring managements such as The People's Space.
They brought their production of the Brecht-Weill The Threepenny Opera starring Sean Taylor to the Market Theatre in 1981. Other productions of this company include Metamorphosis, Summit Conference, Agamemnon, Decadence, Fanshen, Guinea Fowl and Claw.
Grahamstown Festival, 1984 programme, p 25.
