HighTide Festival Aldeburgh 2019

HighTide Festival Aldeburgh 2019


Town Centre,
IP15 5


We’re presenting a bumper line-up of HighTide produced shows. LIT, which started as a reading at Festival 2017, receives its first ever public performance here ahead of transferring to Nottingham Playhouse. RUST comes to Aldeburgh following a highly-anticipated premiere at the Bush Theatre in London. And there are several more productions, each personal, passionate and innovative, coming here direct from the Edinburgh Festival.

Alongside these new talents, you have the chance to meet artistic titans Andrew Davies, Catherine Johnson, Kate Mosse and Deborah Warner discussing their craft. We have play readings from our writers under commission: Yolanda Mercy, Will Drew, Taj Atwal and James McDermott which we've been developing this year and can't wait to share them with you.

We’re delighted to welcome BBC Radio 3 and BBC Arts to the Festival for the first time, and they will record the live performance of new HighTide radio plays by alumni Tallulah Brown and Vinay Patel for broadcast later this year. And there’s also a chance to experience a virtual reality recording of Tallulah’s hit play from last year, SONGLINES.

After twelve years, this is my final HighTide Festival, and alongside all the new talent I’m thrilled to have back old friends such as Wonderful Beast and Luke Wright. The Festival closes with a Ceilidh so I hope you can join me for one last dance. Thank you for being part of the extraordinary success story of HighTide, now internationally recognised as a powerhouse for discovering and producing new theatre talent.

Steven Atkinson, Co-founder and Artistic Director of HighTide
