EASTERN Angles and Menagerie Theatre Company are taking over the stage of the Seagull Theatre, Pakefield, next week when they present Eguis Soup.

The play was written by British-Nigerian playwright Janice Okoh and centres on two sisters as they travel from London back to Nigeria for a family funeral.

They find they carry with them more than just the bags they had packed for the journey...

The performance takes place on Wednesday and is followed on Thursday with Amy Rosenthal's Henna Night.

The story begins as Judith warns her former boyfriend that she is about to make a radical change to her life.

Who responds to this challenge, and how, provokes a feast of emotion, subtle humour, strong language and a challenging take on friendship.

The theatre, in Morton Road, slips back a century or so on Friday to host an Old Time Music Hall benefit night for the Fen Park restoration project.

Marion Small fulfils the MC's role made famous in tele-vision's The Good Old Days show by Leonard Sachs as she introduces artists ranging from comedians to belly dancers. Meanwhile, a group of talented child actors has signed up to take part in the forthcoming Seagull Repertory Company production of Macbeth, which stars glamour model Abi Titmuss. The youngsters will play the roles of the offspring of the King of Scotland, Banquo and Macduff.

They will work as two teams taking part in alternate shows.

As they signed up, the children's enthusiasm for the challenge was clear.

“I'm really excited and looking forward to the whole experience,” said Alice Cushing, one of the young performers.

And Ellen Grimes, whose son Tyler will also be in the production, said: “I'm really proud of him.

“I just saw it in The Journal and thought we'd try.”
