English Touring Theatre | News http://www.ett.org.uk/ English Touring Theatre was set up in 1993 with the aim of bringing the best possible theatre to as many people throughout the country. At the heart of everything we do is the passionately held belief that quality theatre does not have to be elitist, and that people everywhere expect and deserve the best. This is why in addition to the work on stage we also provide a first class education programme to accompany our tours. We are committed to making our work as accessible as possible, and have extended the Friends of English Touring Theatre membership options to celebrate the support we receive from our audience. en-gb FULL CASTS ANNOUNCED FOR RULES FOR LIVING AND THE WEIR http://www.ett.org.uk/news/full-casts-announced-for-rules-for-living-and-the-weir http://www.ett.org.uk/news/full-casts-announced-for-rules-for-living-and-the-weir Thu, 27 Jul 17 09:54:41 +0000 We are delighted to announce the full casts  for English Touring TheatreRoyal & Derngate, Northampton and Rose Theatre Kingston’s production of Sam Holcroft’s Rules for Living and English Touring Theatre and Mercury Theatre Colchester’s production of Conor McPherson’s The Weir, twenty years after its world première at the Royal Court.
