Relish Theatre in association with Park Theatre launch Time and Tide at the Park Theatre today.
The world premiere of award-winning playwright James McDermott’s new play Time and Tide, directed by Rob Ellis takes to the stage from this evening.
Starring Wendy Nottingham as May, Paul Easom as Ken, Elliot Liburd as Daz, and Josh Barrow as Nemo, the production runs from today, February 5th, through to the 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, with set and costume designs by Caitlin Abbott and sound design by Fizz Margereson, saw its script longlisted for The Verity Bargate Award, the Bruntwood and Papatango Playwriting Prizes, and developed as part of Park Theatre’s Script Accelerator Programme.
