Big Big Sky
Hampstead Theatre Downstairs
From Fri 30 Jul 2021 to Sat 11 Sep 2021
Kilnsea, East Yorkshire. Angie and Lauren are closing up the café for another winter; the birds have gone south and taken the tourists with them. The last visitor is Dennis, stopping by for his pasty and beans. But there's another arrival – one that's unforeseen and life-changing for them all.
Big Big Sky is a beautifully tender play by Tom Wells, who was originally from Kilnsea. The play explores nature's influence on love, friendship and family – the belief that anyone who's lost can be found, even in the remotest of places. It was premiered at Hampstead Theatre in July 2021, directed by Tessa Walker.
'Bit risky though, isn't it? Just sort of turning up to an isolated peninsula in the North Sea without any sandwiches…'
