Although Time and Tide ends on a hopeful note, it is not sickly sweet. The characters’ coming out and coming of age stories are grounded in the joys and disappointments of real life. The ending is just right for the characters.
On the whole Time and Tide is a heart-warming story with bags of charm. With a great script full of laughs, well-rounded characters and brilliant acting, it’s certainly worth a watch.
Writer James McDermott spoke to Emma Clarendon about his play Time and Tide which play at the Park Theatre until 29 February 2020.
How do you buy drugs online? What was Silk Road? Could the libertarians on it actually be steering us towards a more humane drug policy? Or is a play about this dark-web marketplace glamourising drugs?
This one-man show is filled with angst and urgency but could be expanded further for a more in-depth look at the situation the character finds himself in.
This West End revival of smart monologue about drug dealing on the Dark Web is well written if a bit slight.
Technology. Drugs. The Silk Road. We find ourselves in an age where reliance is at an all-time high. What do we rely on? Things to change the reality of our situation.
Josh Barrow spoke to Love London Love Culture about reprising his role in Silk Road (How to Buy Drugs Online), playing at the Trafalgar Studios from 7 August 2018.
Watching the entire performance, I was blown away by the ensemble moments that were dotted throughout.
