Everything a theatre should be: Jumped Up Theatre
The Undercroft is the home to Eastern Angles – Eastern Angles is more than a theatre company – it unearths, celebrates and preserves a ‘sense of place’ creating inspiring theatre experiences. Based in Ipswich at the Sir John Mills Theatre, the company has a second base in Peterborough at Chauffeur’s Cottage and in October 2016, they opened a new theatre space – their pop-up theatre: The Undercroft at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre.
They provide professional rural touring and site-specific theatre with a focus on new writing, new audiences and the development of new talent. Their stories and themes are derived from their sense of place, specifically East Anglia and the East of England. Since forming in 1982, Eastern Angles have blazed a trail across East Anglia over 30 plus years and expanded to national tours and Edinburgh Festival residencies.
The Undercroft venue is located at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre. The Undercroft is a vibrant space for community groups, drama workshops, theatrical shows, live podcasts and cabaret nights. The venue has a studio space for performances, a large Front of House area, which can also be used for exhibits, and a rehearsal space for workshops. Since 2018, Korp has become the resident artist at The Undercroft, with his Studio 4, hosting paint jams and workshops. If you’re interested in hiring the space, call us on 01473 218202 or email the team. Follow the venue on Twitter & Facebook.
