Story about saving lives in Daventry district

In the Deep End
In the Deep End

There will be two chance to see a story of heroism and selflessness in the Daventry district.

In the Deep End can be seen at The Wharf Inn in Welford on Saturday June 3 at 7.30pm and again at The Admiral Nelson in Braunston on Tuesday June 6 at 7.30pm.

The four actor/musicians from the Mikron Theatre Company 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?

There will be no tickets for either of the performances but a cash collection will be held at the end. Both performances take place outdoors.
