CD of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart by David Greig

CD Featuring traditional Scottish tunes and original compositions from the show

Venture across the wintry Scottish Borders from Eastern Angles’s 2017 spring tour – The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart by David Greig. Follow Prudencia – an academic on her way to attend a conference in Kelso. As snow starts to fall, she begins a mystical adventure of self-discovery accompanied by plenty of folky musical moments. The strange and beautiful Scottish tale is told by four mischievous storytellers. Sometimes they speak in boombastic rhyming verse, sometimes through beguiling traditional folk songs, which will set your toes tapping and your heart racing! Part live folk-gig, part folk tale, part barn-storming comedy - David Greig’s modern play thrilled and haunted audiences in equal measure.

Script of Guesthouse by Nicola Werenowska

“It is 1966. I am sixteen years old and I am on the Venetian bridge with Brian Joy from the Golden Sands Guesthouse and he has bought me a 99 and I am on top of the world. Now I am 16, I know what boys want and why you mustn’t give it to them.” Tensions are high in Clacton-on-Sea. Guesthouse owner Val has been taken ill and both her estranged daughter Lisa and ambitious grand-daughter Chloe have arrived to lend a hand. Chloe is close to Val, having spent most of her childhood raised by her grandmother. But Lisa and her mother are not on best terms. In this poignant and beautifully observed drama, three generations of women have to set aside differences as they decide the fate of their family-run B & B. Guesthouse asks what's it like when the town you were proud to grow up in becomes impoverished? What does it take to keep going? And what does it take to face the truth?

Script of I Caught Crabs in Walberswick by Joel Horwood

A hot day, a hot girl, a hot car.
Best mates Fitz and Wheeler are fishing for crabs on a bridge in sleepy Walberswick when they are ambushed by Dani, the fittest girl on the beach. So begins a crazy 24 hours that will change the lives of the three sixteen-year-olds forever. After hooking up with Dani and taking a reckless road trip up the Suffolk coast, will Fitz and Wheeler's friendship survive?

Script of Patient Light by Simon Longman

Patient Light follows a day in the life of a young person in Peterborough and how their vision of the future is blinded by carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. The play examines our need for aspiration, and how to use the world’s frustrations to your advantage. ‘We just wait. Old light. And new light. We just wait. For each other, patiently wait.’ Patient Light is a brand-new audio sensory experience, that will preview at the Undercroft before a schools tour next year. Visitors will listen on headphones to the show and experience an immersive sound design using binaural technology. The aim is for audiences to sit immersed in the set design and atmospheric lighting design whilst listening to performances pre-recorded by actors set against a sound design. Simon is a renowned writer, who was a member of the Royal Court Young Writer's Group and won the Channel 4 Playwrights' Scheme. He is currently writer in residence at the National Theatre. Simon’s previous credits include Island Town (Paines Plough Tour), Gundog (Royal Court Theatre), White Sky (Gate Theatre), Milked (Pentabus Theatre, Soho Theatre), and Sparks (Old Red Lion).

Script of The Ballad of Maria Marten by Beth Flintoff

A thrilling retelling of a real-life murder mystery... Summer, 1827. In a red barn Maria Marten awaits her lover. A year later her body is found under the floor of the barn in a grain sack, barely identifiable, and the manhunt begins. Maria's story sent shock waves throughout the country. The Red Barn Murder (as it became known) was national news, inspiring writers and filmmakers down the ages. The sort of gruesome tale that had all the hallmarks of a classic crime drama - a missing body, a country location, a disreputable squire and a village stuck in its age-old traditions. But in all this hysteria Maria's own story gets lost. Until now. Hal Chambers and Beth Flintoff's spine-tingling retelling rediscovers her story, bringing it back to vivid, urgent life.
