World Premiere

Marina Theatre

The Marina Theatre is Lowestoft's longest-running independent theatre and has been at the heart of the town for many, many decades. In 2012, the Marina Theatre Trust took over running the theatre, of which is a big building to run for a small charity.

Phil Aves - Change Manager of Lowestoft Rising: 

Lowestoft has rarely celebrated itself and rarely captured all the good things that have happened here in the past. Life of Lowestoft looks to change that and create a documentary about the town, by the town, which we can add to in the future but always have a history of the past and present."

“Joshua’s dream and ideas are really coming to life.”
