The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is delighted that its regional premiere of Romford-born playwright David Eldridge’s critically acclaimed drama In Basildon, has received a nomination in the Off West End Theatre Awards.

Assessors from The Offies (Off West End Theatre Awards) have nominated Patrick Driver for Best Male Performance in a Play.

The OffWestEnd.com website, which champions London’s independent theatres, launched the annual awards – also known as The Offies – in 2010 to celebrate excellence in productions outside the West End. The Queen’s Theatre is one of over 80 participating venues across the capital.

This explosively knotty drama premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2012 and is directed by the Queen’s Theatre’s Artistic Director Douglas Rintoul. This sharply funny play charts an East End family’s history from the homelands of Hackney, via Romford, to Basildon and beyond.
