Eastern Angles return to Peterborough with an enthralling and evocative new theatre production. produced by a professional creative team, the cast will be made up of local performers including members of Peterborough Mask Theatre, local schools and other community organisations. Dark Earth will be staged in a special covered auditorium with full stage, sound and tiered seating in the grounds of the historic Flag Fen Archaeology Park.

A breathtaking love affair, a scheme to drain the Fens and then the discovery of mysterious body… Eastern Angles use live music, puppetry and atmospheric theatre design to show how Dutch incomers and local farmers transformed the 17th century Fenland’s. This captivating new play sets parents against children, priest against tenants and engineers against eel-trappers!
