I Caught Crabs in Walberswick

By Joel Horwood

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

A fast-moving, exhilarating play about teenage hopes, dreams and frustrations in a rural part of England.

Wheeler is a high-flying comprehensive kid destined for university, while football-mad Fitz is struggling to cope with his dysfunctional father and his schoolwork. They live in Walberswick, a sleepy Suffolk village known for hosting the British Open Crabbing Championship.

Set on a sweltering summer's day on the eve of their last GCSE exam, they are ambushed by Dani, the fittest (and poshest) girl on the beach. So begins a crazy twenty-four hours that will change the lives of the three sixteen-year-olds for ever.

Joel Horwood's play I Caught Crabs in Walberswick was first performed at the 2008 HighTide Festival in Suffolk in a co-production with Eastern Angles.

The production transferred to the Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, as part of the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and then toured the UK before a sell-out run at The Bush Theatre, London, in November 2008.
