Eastern Angles present: Guesthouse @ John Peel Centre

Performances Weds 14th & Thurs 15th March 7.30pm

A grandmother, mother and a daughter have to set aside differences as they decide the fate of their family-run Guesthouse. Battling family demons and the crashing waves of a troubled past, tensions are high in Clacton-on- Sea. Exploring the lives of three generations of women, Guesthouse asks what’s it like when the town you were proud to grow up in becomes impoverished? What does it take to keep going? And what does it take to face the truth?

Written by Essex playwright Nicola Werenowska and directed by Tony Casement, this new show will tour across the East of England.

About the Writer:
After a flirtation with playwriting when she was 16 (her play “20%” was runner-up in 1988 Royal Court Young Playwrights’ Competition), Nicola began playwriting in 2003, following her dyspraxia diagnosis. Productions include: Davy’s Day (Mercury, 2004); Peapickers (Eastern Angles, 2007); Freedoms of the Forest (Menagerie, 2008); BirthDate (Nabakov, 2012); CASH! (Mercury, 2013); Tu I Teraz (Hampstead, Nuffield, Mercury, 2012/13); Tattooed Under Your Skin (Theatre 503, 2016); Hidden (Oxford Playhouse, Marlowe, Mercury, 2017). Nicola has been on attachment to Graeae, a member of the Royal Court National group and is playwright in residence at Lakeside Theatre.
