What's on at Frinton Summer Theatre

Support us

The beautiful tradition of summer seaside ‘weekly rep’ is alive with professional theatre at local prices for our audiences from Frinton and beyond. It costs around £500,000 to produce our summer season of seven productions. Ticket sales cover only 65% of our costs. Frinton Summer Theatre has been a career springboard for actors such as Vanessa Redgrave, Julian Fellowes, John Osborne, Lynda Bellingham and Owen Teale, and it remains an important seedbed for future talent in British theatre.

Don't miss...


by Peter Quilter

We're back with a UK premiere of one of Peter Quilter's latest plays. We all perhaps have thought there is one novel inside us waiting to come out….

This is the story of three novelists, Maureen, Alex and Shelley who descend on a remote writer’s retreat to try and finish their latest “masterpieces”. Along with attempting to deal with their own versions of writer’s block they begin to act out key sequences in their novels - usually to huge comedic effect. 


Directed by Alison Reid (The King's Speech) and starring Tracy Collier (Home I'm Darling). Don't miss this fantastic premiere!
