A visually stunning multimedia journey into deep waters.
In 1969, British amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst seemed poised to win a solo, round-the-world sailing race. Suddenly, he went radio silent. Weeks later Crowhurst’s boat was found, hundreds of miles off course and with no sign of its captain. Only his logbooks remained to tell the tale of one man’s desire to win at any cost. From the award-winning company that created The Highest Step in the World comes this dazzling and imaginative new play about the art of deception.
How far would you go to win?
Ghost River Theatre is creating this bold new show using a devised theatre methodology. This time we're exploring live video projection as a means of storytelling.
