Waiting at the Water's Edge is a gripping new play by Lucinda Coxon. It opens with a chance meeting between two young girls, Vi and Su, on a North Wales beach. Their fates become entwined when they are both employed as servants in the same house. Vi forms a strange alliance with Will Couth, son of the house. The consequences of their relationship unfold with devastating results for those whose lives they touch. From the coast of Wales to the mining heartland of Nova Scotia, Waiting at the Water's Edge charts a magical voyage across time and continents. Constantly undermining traditional notions of male/female and master/servant roles, this play is frequently as thought provoking as it is entertaining.
