Eastern Angles Theatre Company combines heritage with theatre to make regional stories and hidden histories come to life on stage. The company are based at the Sir John Mills Theatre in Ipswich but tour across the county to villages, towns and quirky outdoor locations.
Eastern Angles provide professional rural touring and site-specific theatre with a focus on new writing, new audiences and the development of new talent. Their stories and themes are derived from our sense of place, specifically East Anglia and the East of England. Since forming in 1982, Eastern Angles have blazed a trail across East Anglia over 30 plus years and expanded to national tours and Edinburgh Festival residencies.
Eastern Angles are based at the Sir John Mills Theatre on Gatacre Road in Ipswich. The building was originally a Victorian primary school but has since been converted into a working theatre and is the central office for the company.
If you ever need to collect or book tickets in person, this is where the Box Office is located. There is a free car park behind the building.
As well as professional performances, music and comedy nights, the theatre often hosts local amateur societies.
