Guesthouse

Eastern Angles return to the Jubilee Hall with this touring production of Guesthouse. Written by Essex playwright Nicola Werenowska and directed by Tony Casement.

“It is 1966. I am sixteen years old and I am on the Venetian bridge with Brian Joy from the Golden Sands Guesthouse and he has bought me a 99 and I am on top of the world. Now I am 16, I know what boys want andwhy you mustn’t give it to them.”

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?
