Audiences are invited on a magical, moving tour of Nigeria in a new play.

The Eastern Angles, is performing Palm Wine and Stout, a semi-autobiographical story of Taiye, who has an English mother and a Nigerian father, and his spiritual journey back to the family's African village.

Interesting parallels are drawn between rural English village life and Africa in this play, written by the award-winning playwright Segun Lee-French, and the poignant and funny play is bursting with colour and culture.

Founder and artistic director of the Eastern Angles Ivan Cutting said; “This is a fantastic play.

“It’s got some really great atmospheric music, some very funny moments and will certainly strike a chord with anyone familiar with the day-to-day eccentricities and petty politics of village life!”

Eastern Angles are a regional touring theatre founded in 1982 and perform several plays per year. They are taking Palm Wine and Stout to 50 venues throughout East Anglia.

The play is being performed at Witham Town Hall, Newland Street next May 23 at 7.45pm. Doors open 7.15pm Tickets are priced at £10 in advance, £12 on the door for adults and £8 in advance, £10 on the door for concessions and are available in person from the Visitor Information Centre at Witham Town Hall, online from or 0845 017 8717.
