Matt Wilkinson's new play Red Sea Fish tells a darkly funny and
ultimately tender story about loss, identity and the folly of trying to control the world.
Ray, a retired thief, sees out his days on the top floor of a tower block on the South Coast. Confined during the day by a rare skin condition, he's cared for by his son Terry. Ray merrily fills the air with accounts of lost love, past misadventure and the daily observations of a bitter old man. When Terry meets a young runaway
Karen, looking for refuge, he invites her back to the flat. Immediately Karen's presence ignites passions in Ray.
