Everyone loves a good drama, and here are some reminders of scenes from the stage in the Sunderland area.

We’ve dipped into the archives for some lovely shots of amateur dramatics down the years and now we are asking the question ‘who do you recognise?’

Two of our nostalgic images show the members of the Fulwell Methodist Church Drama Society in their production of Mother Goose.

They were presenting it in the Church Hall, Seaburn Dene, in 1974, and perhaps you can tell us if it went down a storm. Who can you spot in the photos?

Were you a member of the society and what were the other productions that the drama group staged back in the 1970s?

Secondly, there is theshot of Sunderland Drama Club who were performing a show called Granite in February 1977.

Can you identify any of these five actors who were all part of the show. If so, email chris.cordner@jpress.co.uk

And tell us more if you have any other memories of the drama club.

Lastly, Cleadon Drama Club is pictured during rehearsal for a show they were putting on in 1986. Can you identify the show or the people pictured?

What are your memories of the drama scene in years gone by on Wearside, and do you have any more photographs? Get in touch and tell us more.

Or perhaps there is another aspect of Wearside history that you would like to reflect on.

It could be anything from your favourite school to a pub, restaurant or cafe that you loved.

Perhaps you want to share memories of your family tree or reminisce on a top sporting event from Sunderland’s history.

Whatever your recollections, get in touch and tell us more.
