Welcome to the 2015 Summer Season

East 15 not only offers a rich mix of both established and new work from across the range of acting courses but also takes many of the productions beyond our own campus theatres and out to many other performance spaces. We hope you enjoy our work.

If you would like to join our priority mailing list and be among the first to hear about up-coming productions, please e-mail us at east15@essex.ac.uk with your contact details

In addition to productions being staged by all of our graduate year BA students at both campus theatres, this term also sees our BA Acting and MFA Acting students in the West End at The Tristan Bates Theatre.
