Alex loves his wife, his daughter, his city, his job. But sometimes the force of life can crash against you. Sea Wall is a delicate monologue, completely devastating and beautifully powerful. Alex’s story begins full of clear light and smiles, as he speaks about his wife, visiting her father in the South of France, having a daughter, photography, and the bottom of the sea. But his contentment falls away into deep and heart-breaking grief, crumbling to pieces with a vividness that is incredibly moving. Sea Wall was first performed in 2008 at the Bush Theatre in London.
