Archives - The Sea

by Edward Bond

Directed by Danny Swanson

Friday 29th March – Saturday 6th April 1996 in the Auditorium

The Sea is a compassionate comedy, about a tragedy and human beings’ ability to adapt in order to survive.

The drowning of a young man and the arrival of his companion, Willy, in a close-knit coastal town has a profound impact on the town’s inhabitants. Hatch, the town draper, believes the stranger is a manifestation from outer space and plots to get rid of him. Willy turns to Evens, a wise beachcomber, for advice: “Don’t give up hope, that’s always silly. The truth’s waiting for you, it’s very patient and you’ll find it”.
