An LGBT comic drama is presented by Relish Theatre in association with Park Theatre for its world premiere beginning 5 February 2020. The heartfelt drama comes from award-winning writer James McDermott and was developed as part of Park Theatre’s Script Accelerator programme. Tickets for Time and Tide are available now for its just under a month run! The LGBT play focuses on the struggles of unrequited love and the Norfolk community who are struggling with the tide of change. This fresh new drama is definitely one to watch, having already been longlisted for various awards and prizes.
What is Time and Tide about?
Time and Tide focuses on the struggle of the Norfolk community who aren’t adapting to the mass of changes that have occurred. On the end of Cromer Pier is May’s crumbling caff. Ken, her delivery man, is running out of customers – thanks to the chain Costa. Nemo on one hand is desperate to pursue his acting dreams in London and on the other is his unrequited love Daz who is refusing to deal with the fact that he’s struggling with his best friend leaving.
