Low Tide in Glass Bay

Thu 2nd – Fri 3rd Oct 2014


“Soundbite to be specified”





Deadpan Theatre


After a very successful Edinburgh Fringe debut, Deadpan Theatre bring their show back to Bristol for two nights only...


Deadpan Theatre present Low Tide In Glass Bay, a quick-witted and heart-warming comedy about an immature Welsh couple and their timid niece.

Thirty-somethings Karen and Bronnie drink, joke and shortcut their way through life together in the small town of Tonypandy. A couple of 15 years, the two women are blissfully conscience free even at their most destructive; their greatest crises are unresolved takeaway orders and dangerously low tides in their wine glasses.

This hilarious and charming comedy tells the story of Karen and Bronnie’s relationship with their simple but lovable niece, Robwyn – a frequent casualty of her aunts’ irresponsibility. Robwyn is victim to all the normal trials and tribulations of teenage life: young love, Clearasil, and school plays. But when disaster strikes, it might finally be time for Karen and Bronnie to sober up and take life seriously.

"If you are looking for laughs from start to finish then this is the play for you."

★★★★ EdFringe Critic

Written by Eliot Salt and Artemis Howard, Low Tide in Glass Bay is the first play from exciting new collective, Deadpan Theatre. This is the last performance of the play following a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe this August.

Deadpan Theatre’s next venture, “Changing Partners,” an original comedy set in a theatre dressing room, will premiere at the Alma Tavern Theatre on the 23rd to 25th of October.
