A regional theatre company is set to tour with an Icelandic play this Autumn.

Eastern Angles is preparing to present Jón Atli Jónasson’s play 'The Deep' across East Anglia.

The production tells the true story of a young fisherman's battle for survival in the North Sea, employing local choirs and projections to enhance the dramatic narrative.

Director Jake Smith said: “This is a moving odyssey based on a true story.

"It connects our regional identity and maritime history with a broad world view and shines a light on the power of live theatre.

"We witness the day in the life of a fisherman, a day in which the ship he is on sinks and his friends and colleagues drown.

"A day in which, against all odds, our fisherman survives.

"I am excited to be working across the region's coastline and featuring members of the community in our production.”

Audiences can experience 'The Deep' from September 24 to October 26.

Information and tickets are available via the Eastern Angles Box Office or easternangles.co.uk.
