Big Big Sky


August 8–18

Written by Tom Wells

Directed by James Warwick

Starring James Barry


Kilnsea, East Yorkshire. Angie and Lauren are closing up the café for another winter; the birds have gone south and taken the tourists with them. The last visitor is Lauren’s dad, Dennis, stopping by for his pasty and beans. But there’s another arrival—one that’s unforeseen and life-changing for them all. Big Big Sky is a beautifully tender play by Tom Wells, who was originally from Kilnsea. The play explores nature’s influence on love, friendship, and family—the belief that anyone who’s lost can be found, even in the remotest of places.


James Warwick’s award-winning direction has graced many local stages, including recent productions of Lunar Eclipse, The Children, and Mothers & Sons at Shakespeare & Company and Off-Peak with Barrington Public Theatre.

“★★★★★ This poignant, uplifting play is just what we need right now.”
