The Theatre in the Rough Festival is a producer of new writing by young people from Greater Merseyside. They’ve commissioned a new audio project, which has unearthed the hidden histories and secret stories of communities along the Sefton coast.
Coastlands, is a series of six unique audio documentaries, created through a year-long collaboration between local theatre-makers and the general public. They combine documentary recordings with original writing, soundscapes and drama to capture a unique panorama of the towns and villages that form the 22 miles of Sefton’s coast.
The six episodes last just under half an hour each:
THE LITHERLAND RUNNING MAN
24 HOURS IN SOUTHPORT
CHANTING THE SEFTON COAST
ANOTHER PLACE LIKE HOME
SEFTON SAVES THE ENVIRONMENT
