Touring Autumn 2021!

6th October - 6th November 2021

Our White Skoda Octavia is a heartfelt story of family life told with truth, humour and tabla rhythm. 

In a small town in the East of England, Amjad decides to take up taxi-driving. His days take on the rhythm of a drum. But when money is tight and Rabia's stifled ambitions hang in the air, cracks begin to appear. 

Written by Shamser Sinha and directed by Sameena Hussain, this moving new play shines a light on the struggles of contemporary life as one family juggles bills, dreams and taxi-driving schemes.

Inspired by conversations with residents in Peterborough and Ipswich (funded by Arts Council England).

The show will be performed with BSL interpretation from Bharti Kothari on Saturday 9th October (evening performance) and Saturday 23rd October, and from Kirsty Dorkenoo at the 2pm performance on Saturday 5th November.

See it safely

At the Sir John Mills Theatre we will be continuing with our current Covid regulations, keeping a cabaret style seating set up in place. This means we will be selling to a reduced capacity and mask wearing will be expected (by both our staff and audiences). We encourage you to pre-order your pre-show and interval refreshments, these will be brought to your table by a member of our Front of House team.

We will also be selling to a reduced capacity at Woolpit Village Hall, New Buckenham Village Hall and Dennington Village Hall. Mask wearing will also be expected at these venues, and we enourage you to pre-order your pre-show and interval drinks when making your booking.

We will be reviewing these regulations on a rolling basis and will inform ticket bookers of any changes. 

For information about performances at other venues please contact their Box Office team.
