Amy collects her husband’s effects, the things he had with him gathered in a single box. There was no sign – no warning. As fractured memories of their last night together rewind, replay and unravel, she is desperate to find out why.
Joe and Matt are making a documentary. Whilst reviewing their footage they make a startling discovery that will take their film in an unexpected direction - the blurred image of a man jumping from the cliffs.
Beachy Head is the follow up to the award-winning Mile End and mixes text, 3D animation and a dynamic physicality, and is described as a powerful look at the ripple effects of one man’s decision to take his life.
Commissioned and originally co-produced by New Wolsey Theatre. Co-commissioned by Farnham Maltings.
Developed at Lyric Hammersmith, The Pleasance and South Hill Park, Beacy Head is supported by Arts Council England, The Wellcome Trust and Royal Holloway University.
Beachy Head runs at the Lowry from 19 -20 February.
