CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
The Stretch snakes along the seafront in a seaside town that has seen better days. Summer left a long time ago and now the paint is peeling, the beach is windswept and the tourists have all taken the last train home. Using their own language in their own small world, best friends Pearl and Ocean precariously cling together making small change from fruit machines and temporarily escaping The Stretch by whatever means possible. And then, one night, with fireworks exploding in the sky and police sirens wailing, Ocean sees the body on the beach... Coasting has been developed through Bristol Ferment, and is a dizzying and hauntingly beautiful story of lives lived at the end of the pier, written by one of the South West s most vital new talents, Natalie McGrath.Performers Nadia Girscir (Pearl), Tom Wainright (Ocean), Helena Lymbery (Falcon).
