The Shipwrecked House

The Shipwrecked HouseT379517138
Outside, a storm is raging. Inside, a darkened room preserves the fragments of a past underneath dust sheets. Sea-shells, voices, yellowing postcards: the flotsam and jetsam of a childhood spent beach-combing on the coast of Brittany. Stories emerge: of treasure found in tidal ponds, and women metamorphosing into serpents. But beneath the floorboards, the creaking groans of whales warn of unsettled futures. In a sparkling one-woman performance that blends poetry with theatre, Anglo-Breton poet Claire Tr?vien navigates a shifting maritime landscape. Memory and myth from the Celtic fringe are transformed by her surreal, playful poetry - critically acclaimed, and longlisted for the 2013 Guardian First Book Award. In her stage debut, Trevien evokes the sounds, sights and rich scents of the sea. But beneath the surface, a violent undercurrent stirs. What will she discover in the sodden debris? Will the storm break in?
