Making Waves

by Stephen Clark


10th - 15th July 2017


Mike, father of the Tanner family, is the coxswain of the Tynemouth Lifeboat. The demands of his job take priority over the needs of his family. But he's a hero. What can they do?


Lyricist and playwright Stephen Clark has constructed a tense family drama from the brave men who go to sea to save others but whose families must bear the consequences.


A beautiful play with interesting times and comical moments.
