East 15 Acting School
East 15 is a British drama school in Debden, Loughton, Essex. At the main campus, Loughton, it occupies an 18th century mansion, Hatfields, and has its own theatre, the Corbett, which is adjacent. The Corbett Theatre is an adaptation of a 15th-century barn. The re-building and equipping of the theatre was largely funded by the actor, and alumnus of Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop, Harry H. Corbett. Part of the school is located at Southend, and is centred around the Clifftown Studios.
The school is accredited by the National Council for Drama Training and its degrees are awarded by the University of Essex, with which it merged on 1 September 2000. The area of Debden and Loughton is linked to central London via the London Underground.
