Eastern Angles Theatre Company combines heritage with theatre to make regional stories and hidden histories come to life on stage.
Eastern Angles provides 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 Eastern Angles Centre on Gatacre Road in Ipswich. The building was originally a Victorian primary school but has recently been developed into an Arts and Heritage Hub for the local community as well as being the central office for the company. The building is home to the company's Homework Club, Digital Drop In sessions, Gardening Club and other community projects; it is also used as a working / event space by other local organisations.
The Eastern Angles Centre is also home to the Sir John Mills Theatre. As well as being the Ipswich home of the company's touring production, the Sir John Mills Theatre also hosts other professional performances, music and comedy nights, and local amateur dramatic societies.
