Based in East Anglia, the Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company was founded in 2012 to tour high quality theatre across the region. We provide a platform for emerging talent in all areas of theatre including performers, managers and designers. Our family has grown into a core team of eight. We have worked with over twenty five actors, including some who have remained with the company to take on a variety of roles. We run on a shared passion for brilliant theatre and a lot of tea and biscuits.
Over the last three years we have toured to twenty different venues, returning over and over again to many of them. We have performed four original shows, including in 2015 our first Christmas production ‘The Blacksmith Who Chased the Moon’ by Anthony Cule. In addition we have become part of the rural touring programme run by Creative Arts East and have been awarded a grant by Arts Council England for our upcoming tour of the new play ‘Forgotten’ by Ray Rumsby. ‘Forgotten’ will tell the story of the life of the Suffolk poet George Crabbe, who wrote the original Peter Grimes and embarks on a 17 date tour in April 2016.
We have become increasingly interested in the stories and people who have lived and worked in our beautiful region. Our East Anglian heritage encompasses many fascinating and diverse tales that are crying out to be told. The ones that are known, we determine to shine a different and original light upon. Those that time has ‘Forgotten’ we reveal to new generations. Rich history forges the future of our company, local myths provide the basis for stories that unfold on stages and in village halls both near and far. In 2017 we will bring ‘Anglian Mist,’ an exciting cold war thriller that explores the legends surrounding Orford Ness, to as many venues as possible.
Please do take a moment to look around our website and find out more about the team and our shows. We hope to meet many of you as audience members at one of our performances. Come and be part of our dream after all ‘We are such stuff as dreams are made on.’
