The Homecoming Front.jpg

The Homecoming is the story of a family. However, this is a very particular family.

Life is turned upside down when one of the sons returns from America with his wife, whom they have never met.

That is when the fun begins...

A Pinter masterpiece, laced with great drama and very quirky humour.

Hold on to your hats, as this is going to be one very exciting rollercoaster ride! 

N.B. This production has been re-scheduled from 31st Oct - 4th November 2023.  Any tickets already purchased will be valid for the new dates. New tickets are now  on sale. 

LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN
by Oscar Wilde 

Lady Windermere's Fan 2024 .jpg

Dixon Studio, Palace Theatre,
Tue 23rd - Sat 27th April 2024

(tickets now on sale!)

Upright, rigid, and very nearly Puritan, Lady Windermere has high expectations about how people ought to behave. Imagine her horror when she is confronted with evidence that her husband is having an illicit affair. Several revelations later we realise that you cannot truly judge a person based on gossip and scandal. While it explores human nature and the restrictions placed on women in high society, Lady Windermere's Fan also contains some of Wilde's most beautiful and celebrated lines.

About the Company

Originally formed in 1951, the Southend Shakespeare Company is one of the few theatre groups in the south-east, professional or amateur, that dedicates itself to performing plays from a classical repertoire.  In recent years our programme has included works both ancient and modern, by authors as diverse as Coward, Moliere, Wilde, Miller, Priestley and of course, Shakespeare.

We are also one of the most prolific drama groups around, producing an average of five productions each year. Our indoor shows are staged at the Dixon Studio at the famous Palace Theatre in Southend on Sea. Every July we also stage an open air summer production at various open air venues in Essex.

We are always on the look out for new faces who may be interested in acting, or working backstage or any other aspect of the Company. As a Full or Associate Member of the SSC you can obtain discount tickets for certain shows. If you would like to contact us please use the Get In Touch button in the corner of our homepage. We hope to see you soon!
