Another Eavesdropping is a unique piece of verbatim theatre!
The play has been created by our company of actors who spent several weeks recording members of the public engaged in genuine conversations. These recordings have been scripted word-for-word and explored through rehearsal to discover their dramatic potential. Each vignette is a miniature work of art, offering the audience a great insight into the world around us.
It is an honest, poignant, funny and genuine reflection of society that captivatingly reflects the attitudes and opinions of people living their lives in and around London in 2022
An exciting and original concept. SeekNplayUK
Like a theatrical rendering of Gogglebox. A funny snapshot of modern Britain! Sean Turner, Artistic Director of Trinity Theatre, Royal Tunbridge Wells
Verbatim theatre taken more literally than I’ve ever seen it. The Stage

Press for previous productions
The Beckett sandwich that Patterson has assembled is cleverly constructed and brilliantly acted. Not I, Catastrophe and Rockaby is a triumph for Patterson, his talented Angel Theatre Company and Jack Studio. Four Beckett plays surely beckon next year. ★★★★ Close up Culture
Angel Theatre Company bring Beckett to Brockley and leave this reviewer looking forward to more… a frenetic, captivating hour of strange words and striking images… it rolls round in your head and pictures come in and out of focus in one’s memory, ideas step forward and recede, characters (and these are characters for all their strange untetheredness) emerge. ★★★★ Broadway World
John Patterson directs with immaculate precision and we are immediately caught up in the intrigue of this love triangle, devoid of stereotypical melodrama and romanticised fiction… The company conveys a rapport which absorbs us into the worlds of these relationships, linked by their raw nature but different in mood and manner. Beckett pares his later works to the extreme, wasting no words and here we are compelled to hang on to his every one. ★★★★★ Spy in the Stalls
