17 April 2019

INK Festival is coming to Eastern Angles' home at the Sir John Mills Theatre tomorrow for a series of new plays in The Feast From The East. 

On Thursday 18th April, audiences will have the pleasure of seeing a selection of the best short plays from INK Festival 2019. The selection include plays from Scarlett Curtis (recent curator of Feminists Don’t Wear Pink & other lies), comedian Shappi Khorsandi, as well as critically acclaimed local playwrights James McDermott and rising star Martha Loader. 

Tomorrow's programme includes the following: 

AFTER PROSPERO by Martha Loader, directed by Peter Kavanagh
Comic parable for our times set some 400 years after Shakespeare’s The Tempest. A storm is about to break over Prospero’s flooded island home. Squabbling sisters, Ariel and Miranda, are reunited for their father’s wake.

NINA’S NOT OKAY by Shappi Khorsandi, directed by Jane Zarins
A night out on the tiles with 17-year-old Nina is fuelled by something far more potent than drink.

Three quirky women — granny, mum, and daughter — cram on the sofa and watch The royal wedding on television.

MIXED UP by James Mcdermott, directed by James Christopher
Quicksilver piece about a die-hard Morrissey fan, Adam, who may or may not have found his perfect ‘Eve’ at an ‘80s party night.

BUS STOP written and directed by Dan Allum
A clean-cut American is taunted and teased by a precocious lass as they wait for the last bus to the unlovely Green Hill Estate in Huddersfield.

THAT’S GREAT! by Shaun Kitchener, directed by Paul Schlesinger
Rory is desperate to go out with Jake. His flat mate Harry is desperate to help him. So why does the plan go so desperately wrong?

THE SOUND GUY by Corin Child, directed by Peter Broad
A clumsy sound technician is having a serious problem with his plugs at a rally organised by right-wing patriots.
