Presented by Quies Ltd 

Part of Bristol Old Vic's Studio Walkabout Season

"I'm untameable. Like the wind. Or Heathcliff. Or Bruce Springsteen during his Nebraska period. The Beast of Booby's Bay."

Above a secluded cove in Cornwall, Huck, a former fisherman, is holed up in an empty second home. The holiday season is fast approaching - the sharks are coming. As Booby's Bay gets busy for the annual surfing competition Huck wants to shake things up, even if no one's listening. He's going to make a stand.

Booby's Bay is Henry Darke's first full-length play; directed by Chris White and produced by Alison Holder. Following its run as part of Bristol Old Vic's Studio Walkabout season, performances will continue in Cornwall.

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space and build a brand new Studio theatre designed by award-winning architects Haworth Tompkins. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, and we're taking our Studio programme on Walkabout around Bristol!

Booby's Bay continues our Studio Walkabout Season, inspired by the city-wide partnerships created during the Theatre's first phase of refurbishment in 2011 which saw us stage productions in other venues including Coram Boy with our friends at Colston Hall.

Please note the venue of this show, and we hope you will join us as we stretch our legs across the city and continue to enjoy our brilliant studio programme.
