In At The Deep End – An RNLI Story

Touring theatre company Mikron come to Gilroy Community Allotment Site.
Skipwick RNLI is all at sea. Crew members are hard to come by and Coxswain Darren’s management style isn’t helping. So when seventeen year old Shannon volunteers, it’s all hands on deck – particularly for Darren’s teenage son, Billy. Can the station survive in this ‘me first’ age? Will eccentric fundraiser Hazel’s ideas ever turn a profit? And can Darren and Billy chart the choppy emotional waters closer to home? With marvellous maritime music and fathoms of fun, join Mikron as we dive into two hundred years of saving lives at sea!
Gilroy Road, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 6DG.
This is an outdoor show. This show will be under cover in the case of bad weather. Bring chairs, blankets and a picnic.
No tickets required, a cash collection will be taken after the show.
