A HIGHLY STYLISED AND ENERGISED CONTEMPORARY RESPONSE TO THE NATIONAL AWARENESS TO THOSE WHO ARE MISSING.
THE NATIONAL THEATRE OF SCOTLAND
THE TIDE CREEPS IN
by Clara Bloomfield
Scottish Tour 2016
No one ever said life was easy. It often feels its one battle after another.
Overtime we begin to bottle everything up. Suppress it.
Suppress and suppress.
Until one day, like the flick of a switch, it all becomes too much…
'The Tide Creeps In' is an exploration of the impact 5 individuals from a small Fife community face in light of a missing person. They seek to remember and piece together the past few days to regain what they have lost. But can they trust their own memories, their own ‘truth’ or do they learn to accept that somethings in life are out with their control?
