Eastern Angles new spring tour show is The Tide Jetty at Stowmarket’s John Peel Centre and is now embarking on a 55 date tour across East Anglia.
The play by Tony Ramsay, whose previous hit shows with Eastern Angles include The Long Life & Great Good Fortune of John Clare and Bentwater Roads, features beautiful music and movement to transport audiences to the Norfolk Broads where the play is set.
Director Scott Hurran, talked to us about the challenges of directing the vast landscape of the Broads on stage. “From the beginning of rehearsals, our process has been about setting up the rules of how we represent the landscape and the water. Working with movement director Simon Carroll-Jones has been a real highlight. He has been able to develop a visual vocabulary for the performance, that the actors can tap into when walking across different terrains, and when floating in water. Sound Design has been incredibly helpful in transporting us to the landscape of the Broads as well. Chris Warner recorded live sounds of water, and nature from the Broads – so it is a real luxury as it’s the closest we can get to putting the Broads on stage”.
The show tours from 20th March to 1st June and will be in Ipswich at the Sir John Mills Theatre from Monday 29th April until 4th May.
