Description

A delightful but poignant comedy set on the east coast of England in 1907. The action centres around the drowning of a young man and the repercussions, emotional and political, it has on the tight, inward-looking village.

It is not a play remarkable for anything more than its rational simplicity. In fact, shortly after premiering at London’s Royal Court Theatre to wide acclaim, Bond wrote “So the sea is a symbol of hope justified by constant new changes and opportunities. (It deals with) your moral involvement in society.”

This play provided the performers with the double challenge of making their play both entertaining and thought-provoking.

By Edward Bond.
