Bare Skin On Briny Waters

Annie finds herself on a clifftop. She says she’s fine but she can’t quite get her story straight.

Sat by her side, Sophie covers the bruises on her neck. She thinks everything might just be alright, because it’s amazing what you get used to, isn’t it?

Underscored with live folk music Bare Skin on Briny Waters is a story about survival and escape. It’s about two young women standing on a cliff edge, steadily being blown on an unexpected course.

Part of INCOMING Festival, a co-production between A Younger Theatre and New Diorama Theatre. 


A supported artist of Hull Truck Theatre, and one of New Diorama Theatre’s Emerging Companies, Bellow Theatre is a Hull based new writing company rooted in brave and stirring storytelling.
