Eastern Angles Present
‘Somewhere in England’
Eastern Angles presents a fascinating and moving new theatre production telling the story of the arrival of thousands of American GIs from the 8th United States Army Air Force.
Naturally, jitterbugging, Hershey bars and nylons all feature in this wartime drama, but there was another side to this shared history – a tale of segregation and of rural communities turned upside down.
Eastern Angles is the regional touring theatre company for the East of England. Eastern Angles was formed in 1982 and since then has become a national model of excellence for rural touring. Eastern Angles has subsequently expanded into national touring including appearances at the Edinburgh Festival. In Peterborough it is working to deliver a five year plan for theatre development in the city.
Eastern Angles 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; a unique comic extravaganza in the Sir John Mills Theatre and Seckford Theatre over the Christmas season. Between tours and performances the company commissions new plays, presents new work by BME writers during Black History Month in October and workshops new scripts.
