GUESTHOUSE by Nicola Werenowska
Eastern Angles Theatre Company, Sir John Mills Theatre, Gatacre Road, Ipswich, IP1 2LQ

Showing from 14th March until 26th May.
A grandmother, mother and 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?

See Eastern Angles Theatre Company for more information.
