Dogwood Productions

Facing The Waves

Thu 26 Sep
A tale that stretches across the centuries, a timeless responsibility. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things, putting the lives of others before their own. Great stories, memorable music.

Facing The Waves is a new musical from Dogwood Productions whose recent shows have toured England and been heard on BBC Radio 4. It features songs and music from the award-winning composer, Alastair Collingwood.

The show brings together an iconic Victorian hero and a young mum from the present day, juggling family, career and crewing the lifeboat. Will it be going off to sea or chips for tea? Facing The Waves celebrates our relationship with the sea, life in coastal towns and the extraordinary work of the people who crew the lifeboats. Dogwood, working with the BBC, captured the memories, experiences and expectations of those living by the sea to create this authentic tale.
