Short film made during research and development in 2019 phases of Laridae with support from Arts Council England, Unicorn Theatre and Southwark Playhouse.
When someone you love is missing, is there ever a time to let go?
Mylo and Hayley have lived in Laridae all their lives; now it’s falling into the sea. Mylo is missing at sea. His wife, Hayley, must decide if she will leave Laridae and Mylo behind.
Laridae, is a visceral, new play by Sarah Wallis that was originally developed under Leeds Playhouse’s supported writing scheme - Furnace. It explores the human impact of coastal erosion and community displacement, and is a stark reminder of our fragile relationship with nature. At its core, it is a play about hope and the difficulty of knowing when we should let go of something that we fear we may have lost.
Following research and development last year with support from 'A Testing Ground Commission from the New Wolsey Theatre' and from 'Arts Council England', we are interested in discussing with venues this production and the programming model of:
- British Sign Language (BSL) only;
- English only;
- and bi-lingually with both BSL and English (integrated)
