COVID-19 UPDATE 25 Mar 2020, 17:30pm

All shows at Eastbourne Theatres are now either cancelled or postponed up until Sunday 17 May.

Please do not contact Box Office, we are working through shows in date order.  We will be able to issue some refunds without contacting you. Otherwise, we will contact customers either by email, letter or phone with details for each individual show.

We will continue to post updates on individual shows on our social media pages and website over the coming days so please keep checking back.

Thank you for your patience at this time.

Due to the current circumstances concerning the COVID-19 virus, all performances up to and including Sunday 17th May have been suspended and our Box Office has had to close until further notice.

Where possible, shows are being rescheduled and details will be available in due course.  We will try and get the new dates for rescheduled shows up on our web-site and social media platforms as we confirm them. Where a customer is unable to attend the new date, refunds will be given.  

Refunds will be made for all cancelled shows, and are currently being processed by our team in date order. 

During this period, our small but dedicated team will continue to work remotely where possible. However, please be aware that it will be much more difficult for them to answer queries or emails during this period and that there may be a significant delay in you receiving a response.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Eastbourne Theatres as soon as possible with an exciting programme of shows. Our website remains open 24 hours a day with tickets available for future performances. We will also continue to post ongoing updates regarding cancellations and rescheduled dates on both our website and social media channels.

In the meantime we thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.

 

Sheila's Island

Tuesday 07 July 2020 to Saturday 11 July 2020

Devonshire Park Theatre

The Office meets Lord of the Flies meets Miranda.

Bonfire night 2019 and Sheila, Denise, Julie, and Fay are Team C in Pennine Mineral Water Ltd.’s annual outward bound team-building weekend. Somehow, Marketing Manager Sheila has been nominated team leader, and, using her cryptic crossword solving skills, has unwittingly stranded her team on an island in the Lake District.

As the mobile batteries die, and cold and hunger take over, our intrepid heroines find themselves called on to manufacture escape routes using cable ties and spatulas, and create a rescue flag with plastic plates and a toasting fork. 

Is it possible to build an adequate night shelter with a prom dress and a sleeveless jumper?

Can Sheila keep tempers from fraying, nails from breaking and get her band of top level executives safely back to shore?

‘It appears Fay is in some state of undress...she’s sitting in a tree, she’s got an eighteen inch knife and she’s singing the first line from Oklahoma!’

Sheila’s Island, is a sparkling, sharp-witted new comedy from writer Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, The Band); starring Olivier Award winner Sara Crowe (Private Lives, Calendar Girls, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Abigail Thaw (Endeavour).
