Bit risky though isn’t it? Just sort of turning up to an isolated peninsula in the North Sea without any sandwiches…

Kilnsea, East Yorkshire. Angie and Lauren are closing up the café for another winter; the birds have gone south and taken the tourists with them. The last visitor is Dennis, stopping by for his pasty and beans. But there’s another arrival – one that’s unforeseen and life changing for them all.

Tom Wells’ beautifully tender new play explores nature’s influence on love, friendship and family - the belief that anyone who’s lost can be found, even in the remotest of places.

Originally from Kilnsea, Tom’s credits include The Kitchen Sink (Bush Theatre) and Ghosting (Royal Court). Wells’ Folk (Birmingham Rep), The Kitchen Sink (Hull Truck) and About a Goth (Paines Plough / Play Pie and a Pint) were all directed by Tessa Walker. Big Big Sky will be their fourth collaboration.

Starring Jennifer Daley (Sing Yer Heart Out For The Lads, Chicester Festival Theatre), Matt Sutton (The House They Grew Up In, Headlong), Sam Newton (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, West End) and Jessica Jolleys (Jack and the Beanstalk, Theatr Clwyd).
