Stephen Clark
Making Waves

Mike, father of the Tanner family, is the coxswain of the local lifeboat. The demands of his job take priority over the needs of his family. But he's a hero. What can they do?

" Theatre is never more satisfying than when it bears the stamp of authenticity, and few theatrical experiences are more authentic than this....a scorching family drama in which you can smell the danger and taste the salt."
~ Alfred Hickling, The Guardian

“Clark's writing is tight and deeply researched, his imagery multi-layered and his vision multi-angled. ...a very fine play ... one which ought to be seen and enjoyed – there's plenty of fun in it, not least a Village People parody, singing 'RNLI' for 'YMCA' – by audiences up and down the country.”
~ Ian Watson , What's on Stage
