Eastern Angles combines historical fact and contemporary fiction capturing the soul of an ancient local industry and putting its beating heart on stage.
Oysters is a tale of sex, boat-building and bivalve molluscs. Mo has just turned fifty and busy restoring an oyster dredger recovered from an Essex riverbed. Helping him bring the boat back to life is Kasey, a young intern with chip on her shoulder. When a piece of Mo’s beloved dredger goes missing their lives are up-ended and the past floats to the surface. A new play by Ivan Cutting based on oral history interviews developed as part of the Pioneer Sailing Trust Land & Sea project.

 
Oysters is written and directed by Eastern Angles’ founder and Artistic Director, Ivan Cutting and is based on oral histories of oyster traders, boat-builders and research by the Pioneer Sailing Trust. Ivan’s previous directing credits for Eastern Angles include the critically acclaimed Private Resistance (which he also wrote), Up Out o’ The Sea and The Long Life and Great Good Fortune of John Clare. His writing credits include an adaptation of the Louis de Bernieres’ novel Birds Without Wings, Beyond The Breakers, Another Three Sisters and the promenade show, Getting Here.

 
Eastern Angles has an excellent reputation for producing high quality drama.  This is the company that produced the stage adaptation of Arthur Ransome’s book We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea, co-produced the Edinburgh Festival hits I Caught Crabs in Walberswick and I Heart Peterborough and produced the successful spring tours; Return to Akenfield, Up Out o’ The Sea, Private Resistance and The Long Life and Great Good Fortune of John Clare. They also produced the 2010 site-specific show Bentwater Roads and 2012 Summer spectacular Margaret Catchpole. The company has a strong local following and a proven track record.

 
Oysters will appeal to a broad audience, including children from 11 years of age upwards
