The new senior partner at Ensors paid a visit to the set of the Eastern Angles Christmas show to mark the regional accountancy firm’s continued sponsorship of the theatre company’s annual festive extravaganza.

And Malcolm McGready enthusiastically embraced the tradition followed by his predesessor, Robert Hatch, by joining the cast in-costume – involving a frock and a blonde wig.

This year’s show, Stoat Hall, takes the audience back to the days of Tudor England, joining characters Sir Roger De Polfrey, his wife Aveline, lovelorn daughters Hedwig and Rosamund, mother-in-law Agnes, Perch the Fool and John the Alchemist at the family seat in deepest, darkest Suffolk.

There’s plenty of spying and sighing going on as poor Sir Roger desperately tries to titivate his mansion and lay on a good spread in preparation for the previously unexpected arrival of King Henry VIII.

Stoat Hall runs until January 7 at the Sir John Mills Theatre in Gatacre Road, Ipswich, before moving on to the Seckford Theatre at Woodbridge School from January 10 until January 21 and then the Key Theatre in Peterborough from January 24 until January 28.

Ensors, a 16-partner firm with five offices around East Anglia, in Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Huntingdon, Ipswich and Saxmundham, is a long-standing supporter of the Eastern Angles, which is based at the Sir John Mills Theatre in Ipswich but tours extensively across the eastern region and beyond.
