HighTide Festival Walthamstow 2017
“Tightly written… a funny yet touching play about friendship that finds not just the comedy in the apocalypse but the positivity.”
The List

The rain has finally stopped. 4 people survive. They are in a swan pedalo.

Following critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Festival, the Arcola and the Lowry, HighTide’s Associate Company DugOut Theatre – the company that bought you Inheritance Blues and The Sunset Five –  return to HighTide with their smash-hit show to ask what we’d remember if we could start again.

Founded by a group of comedians, writers, musicians and actors, DugOut’s work is often funny, sometimes sad, usually hopeful and always musical. It warms your heart, moves your feet, treats your eyes, lightens your load, tickles your fancy and swells your heart.

Taking our joyful, popular plays around the country, we perform in a range of intimate spaces – from studio theatres to country pubs – and believe in bringing our unique brand of theatre magic to audiences everywhere.

Running Time: 1hr

“Theatrically watertight… character comedy, social satire and moral debate.”
The Stage
“At once bleak and hopeful, innocent and cynical, dark and light. The result is nothing short of brilliance.”
