Far From The Sea by Steve Waters

Shop Front Theatre

17 – 21 June – evening & matinee performances

Far from the sea – A new play by Steve Waters,  directed by Chris O’Connell

Through a series of highly charged encounters moving backwards in time, Far from the Sea dissects the fate of a city in a world of conflict.  The play asks what a good city might look like and how we got to where we are.

Told through the eyes of a contemporary Polish woman, an affluent early 90’s family, and a bombastic Alderman of a 1950’s local authority, Far From The Sea is witty and darkly humorous.
