Beached by James McDermott.
What’s it about?
Morrissey-obsessed teenager Jimmy lives in Sheringham, the seaside town they forgot to bomb. He wishes he was anyone else and anywhere else. Then his bicycle punctures on a hillside desolate and his life turns upside down…”Beached” is a comic coming-of age story about learning to love, laugh and live wherever and whoever you are.
Performed and written by James McDermott
Directed by Julia Sowerbutts
Beached won best play at INK 2015 and subsequently went on to win Velvet Trumpet’s best new short comedy at Southwark Playhouse.
Beached has since been developed into a full length play “Rubber Ring” which opened at The Pleasance, Islington to critical acclaim and later this year transfers to The Tristan Bates Theatre, London’s West End.
