Join Amber as she takes us on an journey around the UK's most fascinating theatres, the unusual histories & locations & thriving communities, in this highly personal love letter to Britain's theatres.

From the tip of Cornwall to the Isle of Mull, through rural communities and the inner-city, Amber Massie-Blomfield takes the road less travelled to discover Britain's most astonishing and unexpected theatres. A ruined playhouse, haunted halls, a stage hewn from granite cliffs. Theatres on wheels, squeezed into a former public lavatory and rescued from fire. A theatre that is not there at all.

Making the case for radical, quirky and non-conforming performance spaces alongside iconic venues, this book is a celebration of thriving against the odds. It also tells a personal account of a life-long love affair with the places where 'anything is possible': from open-air fry-ups and an impromptu can-can to paranormal manifestations.

So come and join Amber and Penned in the Margins as they launch her exciting debut at Battersea Arts Centre (one of the theatres included in the book!).
