Sink Or Swim: Spike Theatre Company
Sink or Swim takes audiences on a theatrical voyage using comedy, music and song.
Taking inspiration from tales of the 18th century ‘bedlam ships’, the play is an insanely comic tale of three men’s maddening struggles at sea. En-route to America the hapless victims find themselves running for the lifeboats when they come under attack and their ship - The Sea Venture - is sunk.
As the icy dawn breaks, and with only a single oar, they find themselves alone and going around in circles. The brave souls are left to battle the elements, each other and a leaking lifeboat.
For ages 12 and over.
Sink or Swim will celebrate Spike Theatre’s 15th anniversary year of creating and touring original theatre and will reunite the creative team behind the award-winning and critically acclaimed The Games (The Lowry, June 2012).
