The Drum


1 Beach Road is the new play from the award winning RedCape Theatre. It is a tale of friendship, defiance, a shrinking island, synchronized swimming and trying to turn back the tide.

With the unrelenting encroachment of the shoreline, the sea swallows the row of bungalows, the road, the garage and finally eats its way to the back door of 1 Beach Road, where the inhabitants refuse to budge. Victoria and Jane are left standing at the edge of a precipice.

Drawn from true stories, 1 Beach Road explores the metaphorical connections between Coastal Erosion and Alzheimer’s and asks, “what is it like to lose everything – your home and your memories?”
