'On Shingle Beach'
by Robert Meadows
When a boat, wrecked off the south coast of England, spills its migrant cargo onto the shore, one child is left stranded on the shingle beach, alone and frightened. Alone until sees a man, waiting and watching on the shoreline, making his own choices about her destiny in ways that will have consequences for himself, his family, and the place he calls home.
This new play explores a very contemporary concern: the way in which we respond to the debate about our borders, the changes to our culture and what this says about our humanity. It also a mystery; asking the audience to piece together the truth from a story that intends to intrigue and baffle.
