Far from the sea - A new play by Steve Waters

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.

Dates: 17 – 21 June at 7.30pm (Evening performances)

Thursday 19 & Saturday 21 at 1.30pm (Matinee performances)

Please arrive 10 mins before performance time

Venue: Theatre Absolute, Shop Front Theatre, 38 City Arcade, Coventry CV1 3HW
