A new play about the erosion of coastlines, families and friendships“This is our land Ruby.
We’ve got to keep hold of it. We’ve got to fight for it.”
Rising sea levels are threatening the ground beneath her house but Ruby is wildly distracted. She wants one final blow out before her best mate Lucy leaves for Uni. With the local community in favour of letting nature take its course, Ruby must choose: follow Lucy inland or stay and help her father hold back the tide.
SEA FRET is about erosion - the collapsing and falling in of the rock solids of friendship, family and home.
“Loving where you live with every bone in your body has got to count for something.”
Tallulah Brown’s latest play is a paean to her native Suffolk coastline, written with support from the Peggy Ramsay Foundation. Her previous play about female bullfighter Conchita Cintron, After the Heat we Battle for the Heart, was commissioned by VAULT Festival.
Directed by Carla Kingham (You’re Human Like The Rest of Them - Finborough Theatre, After the Heat We Battle for the Heart - VAULT Festival, No Border - Theatre503, Oxford Playhouse and Nuffield Theatre), and produced by David Ralf.
