English Touring Theatre | News https://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 ANDREW HUGHES JOINS ENGLISH TOURING THEATRE AS A PRODUCER https://www.ett.org.uk/news/andrew-hughes-joins-english-touring-theatre-as-a-producer https://www.ett.org.uk/news/andrew-hughes-joins-english-touring-theatre-as-a-producer Wed, 17 Jan 18 11:01:07 +0000 ETT CELEBRATE 25TH ANNIVERSARY IN 2018 https://www.ett.org.uk/news/ett-celebrate-25th-anniversary-in-2018 https://www.ett.org.uk/news/ett-celebrate-25th-anniversary-in-2018 Tue, 02 Jan 18 13:14:06 +0000 English Touring Theatre announce A Streetcar Named Desire 2018 tour https://www.ett.org.uk/news/english-touring-theatre-announce-a-streetcar-named-desire-2018-tour https://www.ett.org.uk/news/english-touring-theatre-announce-a-streetcar-named-desire-2018-tour Fri, 17 Nov 17 11:40:12 +0000 We are delighted to announce that our spring 2018 co-production with Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Theatr Clwyd, supported by a grant from The Royal Theatrical Support Trust, will be Tennessee WilliamsA Streetcar Named Desire.
