The Raft

by Carl Nixon

1-18 July 2020
Director: David Collins

Production Coordinator: Peter Newling

The Raft is a strong, bold drama that gets to the emotional rub of a family dealing with a deep personal tragedy. On a stormy weekend, Mark and Tonia arrive at Mark’s family’s holiday home in a desperate, final attempt to rescue their marriage. The weather worsens and a flooded river strands them, when Mark’s parents unexpectedly show up. With no escape, all are forced to confront the issues they have avoided up until now, issues that are tearing the family apart, and begin to understand that sometimes to resuscitate love, you have to risk drowning.
