Ashes To Ashes (theatre)

We almost won't be able to move for theatrical performances in Eastbourne shortly and I am very much looking forward to the wonderful variety of plays and shows both visiting the town and homegrown.

Eastbourne's Under Ground Theatre is delighted to present their contribution - a Lost in Space production of the Harold Pinter play Ashes to Ashes. The work was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 1996 starring Lindsay Duncan and Steven Rea. The Lost in Space production will star Margo Gunn (New Tricks) and Chris Parke and is directed by Neil Brown. There will be two performances on the same April evening, one at 7pm and one at 9pm.

In the living room of a pleasant house in a university town outside London, Devlin, threatened by his wife Rebecca’s recollections of an abusive ex-lover, questions her endlessly in his need for a single truth. In her seamless blending of what she knows of violence with the wider violence of the world, Rebecca reveals an eerie communion with the dead victims of unnamed political barbarities.

Under Ground Theatre, Fri 12th Apr, 19:00 and 21:00.
Tickets £10 (members £9), available online, by calling 0845 680 1926 or in person at the Under Ground Theatre.

  1. Ashes to Ashes was a very powerful show. Actors Richard Hahlo & Margo Gunn gave performances of depth in Neil Brown's production. Nice to see the UGT space used in such an interesting way. Lost In Space are obviously an up & coming company - keep an eye out for them.
