“Jaywick is one of them places where you either make it, or break it. And a lot of people been breaking it round here.”
Join Essex-based writer Dan Murphy and company as they share their new verbatim theatre piece on Jaywick, the Essex seaside town currently rated the most deprived area of Britain. This work-in-progress play, made up entirely of verbatim conversations between Dan and the residents of Jaywick, tells a disquieting story of growing inequality in the UK– but it also reminds us how community spirit and humour can thrive, even in the most difficult of circumstances.
