Essex on Stage is an ambitious new two year programme led by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, championing positive notions of Essex, celebrating theatre made by working class people and raising aspirations for emerging artists from Essex and Outer East London. It includes commissioning new plays, establishing a network of venues, touring drama about Essex across Essex for new audiences, organising local events to develop talent and making life changing projects with communities.
The programme kicks off with the regional premiere of David Eldridge‘s In Basildon. Alongside this are rehearsed readings of new plays in development from three exciting Essex playwrights.
