Park Theatre will host the world premiere of award-winning playwright James McDermott’s new play Time and Tide early next year.
Relish Theatre in association with Park Theatre today announced the world premiere of award-winning playwright James McDermott’s new play Time and Tide, directed by Rob Ellis. Starring Wendy Nottingham as May, Paul Easom as Ken, Elliot Liburd as Daz, and Josh Barrow as Nemo, the production runs from 5-29th February 2020.
May runs a crumbling caff on the end of Cromer Pier. Her delivery man, Ken, is running out of customers, thanks to Costa. Nemo is desperate to tread the boards in London. His unrequited love, Daz, is burying his head in the sand over his best mate leaving.
This touching LGBT comic drama examines the lives of a Norfolk community struggling with change. Time and Tide was longlisted for The Verity Bargate Award, the Bruntwood and Papatango Playwriting Prizes, and developed as part of Park Theatre’s Script Accelerator Programme.

TV credits include the recurring role of Mrs Crabbe in ITV’s Mr Selfridge, and series regular Mary in Peaky Blinders while Paul Easom’s West End credits include Evita, The Boyfriend and The Screen Writers Daughter. Paul was last seen at Park Theatre in Hamlet.
Elliot Liburd’s recent theatre credits include Porthos in The Three Musketeers, Danny in Bismillah: An Isis Tragicomedy and Arron The Moor in Titus Andronicus. Elliot is Co-Founder of Fools Rush In Theatre Company and recently debuted his first piece, A Murder Most Foley, at the Pleasance Theatre, London. Josh Barrow’s theatre credits include Silk Road – How to Buy Drugs Online, The Outsider and If Not Now, When? Television credits include Sky One’s Temple and ITV’s Vera. Josh has had film roles in The Trap, and the award-winning short My Brother Is A Mermaid.
