The buzz on RIVER LANE

river lane 1

This is a community play with all the drive and raw energy that that brings – sunshine on a cloudy day. The ensemble cast, crew and particularly Eastern Angles have done the city proud with this production. Let’s hope that ‘the story is not over yet’ (Peterborough Evening Telegraph Review)

There are just three days left to catch RIVER LANE – a love letter to Peterborough in its very special pop up theatre at Serpentine Green. There are a handful of tickets left over the weekend and, as ever, all details are over on Eastern Angles web site.

And whilst your at it sample the sounds of the show with this exclusive mix of the soundtrack for River Lane from composer Chris Warner


I posted on twitter (@matthewlinley)  ‘#riverlane transforms an empty shop unit into a living, breathing love story of friendship and a city / it’s a community play with a huge heart (and a big moon) / a play whose  five leads ease you back and forth through time, through Peterborough (and it’s lost pubs) beautifully supported by a cast of 50

Much more importantly though here are the reviews. You can read the Whats on Stage review here and the Peterborough Evening Telegraph review here. Other twitter views have included:-
