A true story inspired this play about the bravery, spirit and musical soul of a community living by the push and pull of the tide.

In 1915 the Head Coastguard of one maritime village and his crew, left their posts in order to enlist in the First World War. It was the Coastguard’s wife and two teenage daughters who volunteered and took up his mantle. Undertaking the responsibility of the perilous post and the long watch, looking out over the boats and the bay, staying strong and lighting the way.

Poetic and playful, the unique production celebrates and laments what it is to live by the laws of the sea. The roles and rhythms of both a community at war and working to the beat and sway of the changing tides.

Audience: Everyone
