TitlePapers relating to Townsend's involvement with the Phoenix Theatre, Leicester
DescriptionManuscripts, typescripts (including works by other playwrights), correspondence, flyers and programmes related to the Phoenix Theatre, Leicester.

The papers have been split into 3 distinct sub-series: manuscripts related to 'In the Club and Up the Spout', Sue Townsend's first professional commission for the theatre (ST/7/1); papers related to Sue Townsend's post as writer in residence at the Phoenix (ST/7/2); and papers generated by Sue Townsend as leader of the Phoenix Theatre Writers Group (ST/7/3). The series does not contain manuscripts related to 'The Ghost of Daniel Lambert', Sue Townsend's last play as Writer in Residence. These have been retained with the main series of plays in ST/3 to reflect the order in which the papers were originally found.
Extent9 files
ArrangementThe files were originally held together under the general heading, 'Phoenix Arts'. As Sue Townsend had three distinct roles working with the theatre company, the papers have been split accordingly.
