The sea took my house and not yours, everything's different for me.
Rising sea levels are threatening the ground beneath her house, but Ruby is distracted. She wants one final blowout before her best friend, Lucy, leaves for University.
With the local community in favour of letting nature take its course, Ruby must choose: follow Lucy inland or stay and help her father hold back the tide.
Sea Fret is about erosion - the collapse of friendship, family and home.
Tallulah Brown's play is a paean to her native Suffolk coastline. It received its world premiere at the Old Red Lion Theatre, London, on 28 March 2017.
