This Beach (2017)

Tickets: 16 /18
Show Time: 7.30pm

This Beach is a blistering satire of white western privilege made in response to the global refugee crisis
A private beach inhabited by a family; a European family.
They are the owners of the beach. The beach has been in their family for generations.
The family celebrate a wedding, a union between two sides; each of whom can offer something to the other. Security, prosperity, progeny.
During the wedding celebration a stranger arrives on the shore of their beach. The family must decide how to deal with this stranger.
A response to the current refugee crisis gripping Europe and the notion of sovereignty of one people over a piece of land; and the lengths people will go to bar entry to their dominion.
