Good news for anyone in Suffolk and Peterborough area, as Eastern AnglesÂ areÂ reviving their acclaimed stage adaptation of We Didnâ€™t Mean to Go to Sea at The Hush House, near Woodbridge and Nene Park. The play runs fromÂ 22 June Â – 9 July 2016. Some dates have already SOLD OUT so do book soon!
Based on the novel by Arthur Ransome, Nick Wood’s adaptation of We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea is published by Aurora Metro.Â
The Stage on We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea: “There is a nice sense of period about these kids coping on their own under extraordinary, but quite believable circumstances, lisle pullovers and plimsolls at the ready but the human anguish between them is universal and timeless, although there are lots of laughs on the way, too. Highly recommended.”
We have published a number of plays by Nick Wood, the most recent being The Girl with a Book and other plays which Susan Elkin writing in The Stage said “The four topical plays in this volume are all written by Nick Wood (actor, teacher and journalist turned full-time writer) with young people in mind although not necessarily for young audiences so thereâ€™s plenty of scope here for schools, colleges and youth theatre groups.”
