On the furthest edge of a wind-battered rock there sits a small fishing town. Dylan lives with his grandma, forbidden from venturing beyond the shore. But the terrifying tales told of horrors in the deep only whet his appetite - he stares at the ocean and dreams.

Based on an original story by Alex Kanefsky, and featuring original songs and music from Darren Clark, this new play explores the fate of one little fishing town, exposed to the mercy of sea monsters, mer-creatures and spectacularly bad town planning.

11 am is a relaxed performance suitable for those with autistic spectrum conditions, anyone with sensory and communication disorders or learning disabled people.


Children must have a valid ticket and be accompanied by an adult at all times. Children under/over the recommended age may be admitted but will still require a child’s ticket. Baby on lap tickets (£1) are available on selected shows for 0-18months.  Age ranges are provided as a guide and we ask you to consider whether a show is suitable for your child. For further information please contact our Ticket & Information Team on 01227 769075 who will be happy to help.


Blink. Blink again. What do you see? Day by day your world is filling up with colour, little one.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
