TIDELINES: an exploration of dilemmas around identity and culture. For adolescents and personal development groups

Supported by the national lottery through the Arts Council of England

On the shorelines of a distant place a lonely girl turns to the sea for company. Questions that have troubled her all her life become urgent as confrontations reach crisis, until the mystical intervention of a stranger leads her to a new understanding. She finds the truth is more extraordinary than she ever dreamed...

"Did you see her?" - out till all hours."
"She's strange. And the mother's got no control"
"doesn't listen to a word she says"
'"Strange, they're both strange..."

Tidelines combines the timeless magic of story-telling with the visual impact of physical theatre. Myths of the fabulous silkies are mingled with the powerful story of an adolescent's quest for identity in this extraordinary new production which is both entertaining and thought-provoking.
