We took INK on the Road after the 2018 Festival, and visited 9 locations across East Anglia.

It proved to be a great success and plans are being made to repeat this after the 2019 Festival, more details to follow.

2018 Tour –

The Company: Richard Bates, Tim Fitzhigham, Ed Jones, Isabella Inchbald,  Joe Macardle, Molly McGeachin, Amber Muldoon, Janine Leigh and Adrienne Grant.
Directors: Julia Sowerbutts, Huw Brentnall, James Christopher, Peter Kavanagh and Peter Broad
Technical Director: Trevor Allchin assisted by Huw Brentnall
Stage Manager: Denise Brentnall
Associate Director: Jane Zarins

The following selection of plays from the Festival were performed.

The Inkredible Five

BY RICHARD CURTIS, ESTHER FREUD, BLAKE MORRISON, LIBBY PURVES AND STEVE WATERS.
Directed by Huw Brentnall and Julia Sowerbutts.

This year we invited some of the friends of INK to write brand new “micro-plays” for the festival, and all they had to work with was a picture of some old suitcases.

The Kiss

BY MILLIE MARTIN.
Directed by James Christopher.

A brief encounter between an MP and a model in a 1960s hotel room turns decidedly surreal when his wife makes an unexpected appearance.

White Girls

BY MADELEINE ACCALIA.
Directed by Peter Broad.

A breath-taking romp through the refugee crisis in Calais as witnessed by two brassy young girls, fresh out of university and brimful of middle-class cheek.

Cold Call

BY ROSS DUNSMORE.
Directed by Peter Kavanagh.

A call-centre romance turns unexpectedly sour when Rob can’t explain to his irritated colleague-cum-partner exactly where he was last night.
