About Us

Eastern Angles presents and tours regional stories from the East of England.

“The touring company for the East of England, blazing a trail across East Anglia for over 40 years!"

"We are theatre that gets out there!"

Eastern Angles is a regionally focussed theatre company with a broad world view in our approach to creating work with community groups and artists in East Anglia.

Our productions are ambitious, dynamic and a good night out.

We aspire to be Radically Hospitable. We aim to put extraordinary effort and emphasis on making people feel welcome. We seek to remove barriers that prevent people from participating in the shared experience of arts, heritage and culture.

We are proud and committed to rural community touring and to enhancing the engagement and infrastructure of culture in the East of England.

We have a passion for supporting children, young people and our intergenerational audience to achieve their creative potential and ensure access to high-quality cultural experiences are available in the places we live or where we go to school.

“We create innovative theatre and cultural community events with you, for you and on tour to you!”

Our dynamic organisation when not on the road is based in Ipswich at our Community Hub the Eastern Angles Centre and at Chauffer’s Cottage in Peterborough providing resources to equipping and engaging artists, communities and venues.

We believe:

  • Theatre making is a powerful form of community building and representation
  • Everyone is an artist and has the right to artistic expression 
  • We work better when we learn from one another, as people and as an organisation 
  • Our core values are founded in a commitment to being open, generous and brave

We hope:

  • To give people the space and time to come together and see themselves and our world in new ways
  • To connect people, ideas and places together
  • To create space to experience discovery, difference and joy
  • To build community, conversation, wellbeing and inclusion
  • To make great theatre for and about the East of England

Eastern Angles current annual programme includes:

  • Spring Tour a community tour to village halls and small to mid-scale venues in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk and beyond throughout March to June
  • Summer a biennial site-specific or community play production
  • Autumn Tour a small-scale tour to care homes, schools and/or community centres both urban and rural
  • Christmas Family Show touring to Ipswich and Woodbridge during December and January

In between we offer R&D opportunities, work with schools, readings of new plays, and new community activities in Ipswich, Peterborough, market towns and villages where partnerships with local resources make it possible.
