One of the greatest Suffolk stories ever told.
Marking their 30th Anniversary acclaimed touring theatre company, Eastern Angles present an unmissable East Anglian story staged in a spectacular venue - the Hush House on Rendlesham Airfield. Margaret Catchpole is a timeless tale of love, deception and divided loyalty featuring familiar faces from every section of Suffolk's 18th Century society from brave seamen and distinguished doctors to cunning smugglers, corrupt clergy and characterful farmers. Following the fortunes of the infamous servant girl, this lively theatre production charts Margaret's horse thievery and audacious jail break showing how love can make fools of us all....
Margaret Catchpole was originally staged by Eastern Angles back in 2000. It is written by Alastair Cording and directed by Ivan Cutting. This new production will be staged in the atmospheric Hush House with new music, dance and a Community Chorus of volunteers.
Part of the IP-ART Festival 2012.
