Eastern Angles Theatre Company presents The Tide Jetty by Tony Ramsay

The 1860s. Two brothers, Tucky and Nathan grow up on the banks of Breydon Water alongside tomboy, Eliza. The three of them are inseparable. As they grow older the inevitable happens…Eliza turns into a woman and they both fall for her. But tragedy tears the trio apart and years later it is
time to discover the truth of what really happened…

See the first rehearsed read-through of a new and thought-provoking play, The Tide Jetty exploring what we treasure and how and why we preserve it. Written by Tony Ramsay, whose previous plays include The Anatomist (“A vision of the past pregnant with the present” Time Out) and Bentwater Roads (“an engrossing drama from the numerous pasts lurking around it” The Times), the play will be touring with Eastern Angles next year to locations in the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads plus many of Eastern Angles’ traditional spring tour venues from March 2019.

Eastern Angles are excited to be working with the Broads Authority on the Water, Mills and Marshes project, funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund. This fantastic project will run until December 2022 offering people a whole range of events and activities designed to explore and celebrate the incredible Broads National Park landscape and through drama to ask questions about its sustainability.
