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, they commission new plays, tour shows nationally, present new work by BME writers during Black History Month, and workshop new scripts.
