Part farce, part tragedy, all masterful.

When a roiling storm hits a small seaside village, Willy is unable to save his friend from drowning. His betrothed mourns the loss, while the eccentric cast of townfolk is unable to help, what with worries about aliens, drunkenness and small-town thinking taking over.

Set in the Edwardian world of 1907, this social satire blends light-hearted comedy with grief-stricken drama and a hint of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, for a classic piece of British theatre.
