The Sea

The SeaT01982221994
This biting dark comedy takes place in 1907 in a small, seaside village on the East Anglian Coast. The world of the village is harsh, a place where the weak are destroyed by the strong and the strong abuse their power. Mrs Rafi, the bullying matriarch, and her clique of simpering ladies trample on everyone's feelings. Mr Hatch, a sad, unhinged little man is paranoid about visitors from outer space stealing the brains from people's heads and replacing them with machinery! They are enemies, fighting against one another and each other's idiosyncratic allies. The Sea was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in May 1973.
Author Edward Bond
