'Perfectly pitched...has a bit of magic about it'

The Times

HighTide and DugOut Theatre present Songlines by Tallulah Brown  

"She’s scared of what I might get up to out here in the countryside. Keeps giving me lectures on barn-bonking. I’m going to die of boredom just to make her feel bad."

Stevie’s Grandma prays for her salvation, Stevie’s mum preaches free love, Stevie doesn’t know where to start!

She’s sent to Suffolk – the home of doggers, folklore and Stan. The course of teenage love never did run smooth. When Stevie bumps into Stan again, she has a chance to make things right.

A brand new piece of gig-theatre with beautiful live folk music from award-winning band TRILLS, Songlines is a witty and moving coming-of-age love story in all its awkward teen glory.

A new play from Suffolk writer Tallulah Brown, directed by George Chilcott. 

Running time: 1h  

Recommended age: 12+
