LETTER: Impressed by high standard
I recently went to the theatre in Eastbourne to see a very contemporary and compelling play. ‘Contemporary’? ‘Compelling’? In a theatre in Eastbourne? Yes, indeed ; the play was Code of Conduct by young playwright John Berry and it concerned a subject which some people might find difficult to accept in drama , namely child abuse. The play was well written and constructed and the cast gave exemplary performances. It was staged at The Printers Playhouse, a fairly new performance venue in Station Street, which has risen from the ashes of an eaterie. The young company who are running the theatre are very imaginative and forward looking . If future productions equal the quality of Code of Conduct then The Printers Playhouse will be a venue for those of us who demand mental stimulation in our plays to repair to.
