Worst Wedding Ever

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

A Salisbury Playhouse, New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich and Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch Production

Rachel and Scott are getting married. They are also buying a house together. But when the house price goes up, their plans for a dream wedding may have to be downsized.

Rachel’s mother, however, has other ideas. What if the family could join forces and make it a wedding to be proud of? With a marquee in the back garden, the pub band and two fully-functioning portable loos, surely the day will pass without a hitch?

This laugh-out-loud comedy about preparations for a family wedding was a huge hit when it premiered at Salisbury Playhouse in 2014. Now you have a chance to enjoy one of the biggest new comedies in years.

Chris Chibnall is the creator of ITV’s Broadchurch and from 2018 will be Head Writer and Executive Producer of BBC TV’s Doctor Who.

Please note that this production contains some strong language.

A few more details ...

An English Touring Theatre and Rose Theatre Kingston co-production

On one dark and stormy night in the upper day room of the Silver Retirement Home, five elderly ladies are trading stories of their remarkable lives.

Silver Lining is the hilarious new comedy by writer, actor, presenter and political activist Sandi Toksvig. Starring Sheila Reid, Joanna Monro, Amanda Walker, Rachel Davies and Maggie McCarthy. It tells the tale of five extraordinary yet forgotten women, who come together one treacherous night to recreate The Great Escape – senior citizen style!

How To Disappear...

New Wolsey Studio, St Georges Street, Ipswich, IP1 3NF

A few more details ...

A New Wolsey Young Company Production
How To Disappear Completely And Never Be Found

By Fin Kennedy
Directed by Rob Salmon

“What makes you who you are? A name? An address? A random collection of experiences, a few memories? You are who you can prove you are. You are what people think. And that’s the easiest thing in the world to change.”

When a young executive reaches breaking point and decides to disappear, he pays a visit to a master of the craft in a seafront fortune teller’s in Southend. Haunted by visitations from a pathologist who swears he is already lying flat out on her slab, he begins to re-live the nightmarish final hours that see his body retrieved from the Thames, stripped of everything that made him who he was.

This extraordinary play follows one man’s desperate attempts to buck the system, and asks what really makes us who we are in the 21st century.

Strong themes and moderate language make this play suitable for audiences aged 14+

Presented By Unscene Suffolk

A group of children ignore Grandma’s warning about the old games console in the attic, and find themselves sucked into a virtual world full of curious characters and perplexing problems.

A unique chance to see this exciting adventure story for young audiences, fresh from its tour of local primary schools. Unscene Suffolk is a community company of adults with visual impairment, whose performances are accessible to blind and sighted audiences.
