A story of heroism and selflessness is being shown in Lutterworth.
In the Deep End is being performed by the Mikron Theatre Company on Thursday June 1 and will appear at The Wycliffe Rooms for the first time in the 46th year of touring.
The four actor/musicians have turned their talents to recreating the history and modern-day challenges of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
The fast-paced plot zips backwards and forwards through the years, throwing up little-known facts and questions to ponder, all setting sail in a sea of live music and memorable characters.
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?
The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £12 for adults and £10 for concessions. To book call 01455 209358.
