TALES FROM THE COAST (A Trilogy) by Andrew Bridgmont
LANDMARKS: A car lies on its roof, the grass around it strewn with polaroids. This piece for two actors retraces the car's final journey and the life, loves and fears of the man behind the wheel. LANDMARKS is a haunting study of one man at a turning point.
SUMMER OF LOVE: An explosive e-mail attachment rocks life on the caravan site.
A hilarious fly-on-the-wall look at sex, drugs and hovercrafts.
THE GOLDEN HOUR: "I hit him and the cork popped." A bottle of champagne is the weapon of choice. This 45 minute two- hander is a funny, erotic and ultimately moving portrait of a woman's unconventional response to love, sex and '50's Britain.
With three incidents and three abrupt changes of direction, these plays, all set on the south coast of England, explore themes of escape and redemption and also hint at worlds that may lie beyond the horizon.
Tales from the Coast is written by Andrew Bridgmont, author of the award winning play Red on Black about the painter Mark Rothko. The pieces have been developed in close collaboration with The King's Head Theatre, London and with actors Claire Porter, Charles Davies and Henry Peters as well as with Lucie Pankhurst (choreography) and Noah Gwynn (sound design). Our Associate Producer is David Donegan.
Filmed, edited and directed for film by Alejandro Sesma.
