From the team that brought you The Haunted Commode and The Mystery of St Finnigan’s Elbow, prepare for another spoof-tastic treat.
The setting is Tudor England. King Humphrey VIII is on the throne and our cast are assembled in a coaching inn on a remote Suffolk highway. The hostelry’s full of Thomas Crudwell’s spies (often spying on each other!) and down the road at Stoat Hall, Baron Belcham is desperately trying to marry off his three daughters.
Expect ruffs, ruffians, furry mammals and laughs galore!
STOAT HALL tour
Sir John Mills Theatre 7th December to 7th January
Seckford Theatre 10th to 21st January
Key Theatre, Peterborough 24th to 28th January
Eastern Angles is the regional touring theatre company for the East of England.
Formed in 1982, Eastern Angles has blazed a trail across the East of England, becoming a national model of excellence for rural touring before expanding to include national touring, Edinburgh Festival visits and site-specific work. Most recently it has extended its work to Peterborough and is working on delivering a five year plan for theatre development in the city.
Its current annual programme includes: a community tour to village halls in the Spring with new writing, often with a regional flavour; Platform Peterborough in the Autumn; and a unique comic extravaganza in the Sir John Mills Theatre and Seckford Theatre over the Christmas season. In between, we commission new plays, tour shows nationally, present new work by BME writers during Black History Month, and workshop new scripts.
