The sun may yet to have made a meaningful appearance on the coast this year, but Southwold and Aldeburgh Summer Theatres are looking ahead to a bright summer, with the announcement of their summer season of plays.
Opening the season on July 11 is Dave Freeman’s farce A Bedfull of Foreigners, which will play in the town until 21st July before heading down the coast to play in Aldeburgh from 26th July – 4th August.
Other plays making up the season include Frederick Knott’s Write Me A Murder, Richard Harris and Leslie Darbon’s Two And Two Make Sex, Mark Simpson’s adaptation of The Curse of Dracula and Peter Shaffer’s Five Finger Exercise.
The Jill Freud Theatre Company have been presenting an annual professional summer theatre season in Southwold since 1984 and expanded into Aldeburgh in 1995.
Alongside the main productions the company will stage a series of children’s theatre productions, poetry and one off drama.
