We’re proud to present a sharing of work-in-progress by writers from the East of England at the First Light Festival (18th June) and as part of the New Wolsey Theatre. Join us for a sneak peek at some of the new work that HighTide is developing, directed by Chloe France and HighTide Literary Associate, Sarah Jane Schostack.

Sadie Clark’s as-yet untitled piece explores Queer identity in rural communities, farming and climate anxiety. Luke Wright’s Letter From The Future, commissioned by HighTide, is a snapshot from twenty years’ time, as a son questions his father as to why he was brought into a world of Boris, Brexit and the global pandemic. Yaz Zadeh – HighTide Associate Artist – and Mary Malone present Two Figures – part movement, part new writing – in a new work-in-progress sharing exploring rituals, bacon and humanising trans bodies.
