The Covid lockdown has delayed the return to school, and pupils and staff are becoming “Zoom lesson” weary.  INK is helping!
We are currently supporting GCSE and A level English and Drama students in schools across the region, by performing extracts from set texts.
INK actors perform the selected pieces by joining the class on-line. The text comes alive, students get a bit of live theatre into the bargain and the monotony of on-line learning is relieved! 

INK is offering this unique opportunity of the ‘Lockdown Classroom Theatre’ to schools FREE of charge.

A new initiative to celebrate our year-long partnership with Radio Suffolk. Every Friday evening at 7:30pm, Jon Wright interviews a prominent actor, writer or director with connections to Suffolk and INK. They will share showbusiness gossip, insights, and the latest INK news.

The interview will be repeated on Wednesday evenings with Georgy Jamieson.
