We Live By The Sea

Theatre and Physical Theatre
United Kingdom

Katy, who is on the autistic spectrum, meets lonely teenager Ryan when he moves from the city to Katie's coastal town. They make a connection that will shake their worlds forever.

Playful visual storytelling with a live electronic score about autism, friendship and a very big wave.

'We Live By the Sea' comes to Adelaide fresh from critically acclaimed runs at the SoHo Playhouse (New York) and at the Arts Theatre in London's West End. At the Edinburgh Festival it was nominated for a Fringe First, the most prestigious award for new writing, and sold out its entire run.
