SEA WALL at the Traverse

Sold out

Bush Theatre at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe Festival '09

Things for Alex are good. He loves his wife, his daughter, his city, his job. But sometimes the force of life can crash against you. Sometimes everything you thought you could always depend on can be taken away.

Sea Wall is a story about family, fear and the things that can't be undone. It is award-winning playwright Simon Stephens' new play. His previous plays include Pornography (Traverse Theatre, 2008), Port (Pearson Award for Best Play), Christmas, On the Shore of the Wide World (Olivier Award for Best New Play), Motortown, and Harper Regan.

Olivier Award Winner Andrew Scott's recent theatre credits include Roaring Trade at the Soho Theatre and Vertical Hour on Broadway.

Sea Wall was first shown at the Bush Theatre in 2008 as part of the Broken Space Season.
