My Ship of Dreams Theatre Project

April - October 2013

A community arts project involving the creation of a one-hour play, Between Wind and Water, written by Deborah Gearing, which toured shoreline venues along Southampton Water from 24 July - 1 August 2013.

My Ship of Dreams Theatre Project

The show explores the city's rich sea-faring, ship building and docking heritage through the inter-generational stories of one Southampton family, and is inspired by the stories of Southampton people, past and present.

Between Wind and Water is the culmination of the 'My Ship of Dreams' theatre project, funded by the Arts Council England, Hampshire County Council and Southampton City Council.
