David Ralf presents Sea Fret by Tallulah Brown

“This is our land Ruby.
We’ve got to keep hold of it. We’ve got to fight for it.”

Rising sea levels are threatening the ground beneath her house but Ruby is distracted. She wants one final blow out before her best mate Lucy leaves for Uni.

With the local community in favour of letting nature take its course, Ruby must choose: follow Lucy inland or stay and help her father hold back the tide.

An evocative semi-staged reading of Tallulah Brown’s paean to her native Suffolk coastline, first produced at the Old Red Lion Theatre in April 2017.

Running time: 2h
