About The Tide Jetty

Two brothers, Tucky and Nathan grow up on the banks of Breydon Water alongside tomboy, Eliza. The three of them are inseparable. As they grow older the inevitable happens and both the boys fall for her. But tragedy tears the trio apart and years later it is time to discover the truth of what really happened…

The Tide Jetty is a new and thought-provoking play, exploring what we treasure and how and why we preserve it. Tony Ramsay’s previous plays include The Long Life & Great Good Fortune of John Clare (“Compelling, fascinating and dramatic” The Stage)The Anatomist (“A vision of the past pregnant with the present” Time Out) and Bentwater Roads (“an engrossing drama from the numerous pasts lurking around it” The Times).

The Tide Jetty will be touring with Eastern Angles to locations in the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads plus many of Eastern Angles’ traditional spring tour venues from March 2019.

Eastern Angles are excited to be working with the Broads Authority on the Water, Mills and Marshes project, funded through the National Lottery Heritage Fund. This fantastic project will run until December 2022 offering people a whole range of events and activities designed to explore and celebrate the incredible Broads National Park landscape and through drama to ask questions about its sustainability.

The BSL performance will be on Wednesday 1st May at 7.45pm at Sir John Mills Theatre, Ipswich. For further assistance and to book the best seats for this performance, do ring Box Office on 01473 211498 (Mon-Fri, 10am-2pm) or email us.
