Rising sea levels are threatening the ground beneath her house, but Ruby is distracted. She wants one final blowout before her best friend, Lucy, leaves for University.
Staff recommendation: "Best friends Ruby and Lucy have their lives changed dramatically by the incredible and monstrous ocean, a powerful force throughout this beautiful and compelling tale of friendship, family and home. Sharp and truthful, the writing recreates the wonderful and painful complexities of female friendship. Brought up in the same community in very different ways, their sense of place begins to alter as we follow the cracks and turns between them and watch the sea erode their lives. Funny, emotional and thought provoking, this play takes you on a whirlwind and transports you to the terrific beauty of the sea." ZENA
