Tales From The Thames

A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Creative Estuary co-commission

Tales From The Thames

by Rebecca Brewer, Vickie Donoghue and M G Boulter

A story about five people living along the banks of the River Thames whose future is about to be changed forever.

The sun rises over the river, and everything’s coming to life. Dawn chorus plays, jobs are started, engines turned on, containers crashed onto ships and journeys made. But today is different…

Tales from the Thames is about living next to the river. Not the posh bit. Our bit!

This show is made for and by the people who live and work alongside it. It’s performed in a venue right on your doorstep, including live music and a pop quiz. It’s been specially made this summer by the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Creative Estuary.

Suitable for all ages and FREE for everyone to attend.
