Ben Musgrave's Crushed Shells and Mud at the Southwark


Strickland Productions will present Crushed Shells and Mud by Ben Musgrave at the Southwark Playhouse in south London from 1 to 24 October 2015, with an official opening on 5 October 2015.

"England trembles in the grip of a devastating epidemic. But in a brutally remote coastal village, quiet Derek waits for love and life to really begin. Then Lydia arrives. She burns brightly - incandescently. Beyond Derek's wildest dreams. And she is hiding something. When Derek discovers her secret - out by a restless sea, they are both propelled into a strange new world of conflicted desire and dangerous loyalties. Where terrifying forces test their courage and humanity. But can love survive the fear inside?"

The cast includes Alexander Arnold (Vince), Hannah Britland (Hannah), Laura Howard (Sarah), Alex Lawther (Derek) and Simon Lenagan (Peter).

Directed by Russell Bolam, it will feature sound design by Richard Hammarton and lighting design by Richard Godin.

Tickets for the production are now on sale.
