A poignant and comic drama about two half-siblings on an overnight road trip that veers off course and becomes a journey of self-discovery.
Half-siblings, Jay and Kay, are on a road trip travelling overnight from Glasgow.
After growing up apart, the recently united pair are heading for the coast down south, to go camping for a few nights and get to know each other better.
However, things don’t go according to plan. As family secrets and lies unravel, Jay and Kay are forced to make an urgent detour but attract unwanted attention on the road, which threatens to foil their renewed mission.
Will the road trip bring them together or will their baggage overload the suspension?
Coast will feature evocative sound design by Eve Allan and her Edinburgh-based band HÜSH.
Co-presented with Traverse Theatre.
