Written and performed by James McDermott, directed by Julia Sowerbutts, Beached premiered at the INK Festival 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 Theatre, London to critical acclaim and then transferred to The Tristan Bates Theatre, London’s West End.

It is currently on tour and is being developed into a pilot for television.
