Steeped in the heritage of the North East fishing communities, Graeme Maley’s adaptation of The Deep spins a touching tale of one man’s struggle for survival at sea. A beautiful and universal story of love in adversity. Using live music, this one man monologue offers a compelling and unforgettable confrontation of what becomes important and relevant when lost at sea. The Deep was originally written by Jon Atli Jonasson, based on a miraculous true ocean event off the coast of Iceland. 

Joyce McMillan on The Deep: “…moves brilliantly from the absurdity of life to the pain of losing it, from the trivial to the most profound”
