Theatre on the Coast

Vicki Michelle

As of April our plans are still that Theatre on the Coast will be returning to Southwold on 1st August to 12th September 2020.

There will be a host of new and exciting performances throughout the season which opens at Southwold Arts Centre with Hollywood star, Robert Powell, in his one man show Charles Dickens: A Celebration.

Included in the spectacular line up is A Funny Woman, a premiere written by award-winning comedy writer and acclaimed journalist Jan Etherington, who boasts a string of successful TV and radio shows to her name. As well as this, composer Denis King will be adding his musical talents to the programme, not least in the hilarious Privates on Parade, which he co-wrote with the late Peter Nichols. The show was last seen in the West End in 2012.

Joining them are a variety of performers, acrobats and jugglers from Southwold-based Monkey Business Circus, who will also be in town running workshops for families and younger people as well as presenting daytime shows.

Other highlights include another premiere, Attagirls!, from noted historian and writer Stewart Ross, and the season will also play host to six of the short plays first produced at the INK festival 2019 or shortlisted for this years’ showcase.
