Dates of existence



The Faculty Players made their debut performance with Anatole France's "The Man Who Married a Dumb Wife" in February 1921. They adopted their constitution on 21 April 1921, with a membership limited to academic and administrative staff of Queen's University and their families. In September 1953, the Players' executive passed a motion to include Royal Military College faculty and staff as eligible for membership. Dwindling membership led to the dissolution of the club in May 1974, some ten years after the production of their final play. The remaining assets were used to endow the Dr. William Angus Award, with the remainder donated to the Domino Theatre building fund.
