Anglian Mist

By Cordelia Spence & Tim Lane

Hidden secrets, dark conspiracies counter-intelligence and spies are the order of the day for “Anglian Mist” Stuff of Dreams’ 2017 production. When a notable author and historian who specialises in Ufology and conspiracy theories begins his lecture on the secret research carried out on Orford Ness during the Cold War he is somewhat taken aback when an elderly lady in the audience stands up and publicly takes exception to his claims regarding the true nature of the military installation on Orford Ness. What follows is a psychological thriller as a long-hidden cold war plot is brought kicking and screaming into the light of day with chilling consequences for all involved. Inspired by the vast concrete pagodas and the desolate beauty of Orford Ness, this play will open with an immersive theatre experience on the Ness itself and then tour the eastern region.

'One lady (born 1927) said the production was one of the most extraordinary experiences of her life. When it tours the region it might not be quite such an immersive experience. But the acting will make up for it'
Basil Abbot (Diss Community)
'It’s very well acted, particularly by Grant and Turner, in Spence’s production which slow-motions the scenes of violence and interrogation to good effect.'
Anne Morley Priestman (Anneatthetheatre)
'The appeal for me lies both in its local references and also an intelligent, wider meditation on the nature of spying.'
Matt Salusbury (Traffic Light Theatregoer)
