Coasting Social Media Call

This September, we’re running our first social media call for the premiere of Natalie McGrath’s stunning new play Coasting this September at Bristol Old Vic.It will take place at Bristol Old Vic on Tuesday 13th September at 4pm.We’re inviting anyone who writes a blog, tweets, or uses any other kind of social media to come to theatre to take part in a Q&A with the cast and creative team, get an insight into the rehearsal process and film or take photographs.  You’re then free to share your thoughts, pictures and videos through any social media channel you have access to.A blistering mix of 1980s pop culture language and Polari, the gay slang from the 1940s and 50s, Coasting is set in a desolate, faded seaside town and follows best friends Pearl and Ocean as they precariously cling together making small change from slot machines and escaping reality by whatever means possible. Coasting has been developed through Bristol Ferment, and was first seen as a rehearsed reading in Bristol Old Vic Studio in January 2010.  Bristol Ferment is Bristol Old Vic’s artist development scheme, which aims to nurture and support the most exciting artists in the South West.  Coasting is directed by Emily Watson Howes and features Tom Wainwright, Nadia Girscur and Helena Lymbery.Places are strictly limited. If you would like to attend you must register in advance by emailing Matthew Austin on runs between 22 September and 15 October in Bristol Old Vic Studio. Press Night is Tuesday 27
