“A compelling and beautiful piece of theatre” ***** stars -The Cornish Guardian
The Coastguard’s Daughter is a piece of original, lyrical theatre and storytelling, interweaved with live shanty singing and hymns of the sea.
Set in 1915 and based upon the true and almost lost and forgotten Cornish tale, this unique production celebrates and laments what it is to live by the laws of the sea. Working with different singing communities across Cornwall, each show will have a new and unique identity true to the creation of the people involved.
“As far out as the tide may go, it will always return to the rocks, the shore, to you and to me. Everything returns. They never really leave us. It’s just the push and pull of the tide. That’s the rhythm of our lives”. The Coastguards Daughter by Olivia Lowry
