Creating Drama from Local Stories...Behind the Scenes at Eastern Angles

The chance to hear how Eastern Angles finds and makes its shows from local stories, oral histories and old industries. It’s a tale of the radio ballads, the tape recorder and how music, facts and sound effects can stir people’s imaginations and memories. Enjoy the story of how 400 boxes of stuff in the archives became the huge hit Parkway Dreams, or the story of the ploughman’s frogs bone that gave him power over horses.  

Ivan Cutting, artistic director of Eastern Angles will regale you with an entertaining journey through nearly 40 years of Eastern Angles and its remarkable shows with a sense of place.  

Tickets £6. Venue is the Pavilion on Silver Hill, outside Serpentine Green.

This event is part of The Undercroft Weekender - 26th - 28th July 2019
