Ipswich-based Eastern Angles Theatre Company is about to embark on a three-month tour spanning four counties and numerous venues with its new production, Somewhere in England.

The play tells the wartime story of what happened when thousands of American GIs arrived in rural East Anglia.

Nylons, Hershey bars and jitterbugging to swing bands in the local village hall all feature in Polly Wiseman’s new play, but the tales of segregations and of rural communities turned upside down are also addressed.

The opening performance takes place at the John Peel Centre in Stowmarket on Wednesday, March 9 and Thursday 10th before heading out to more than 40 other towns and villages in Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk and Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordhire.
