The Deep

First Performance 2001

Adapted from the book by Tim Winton

Alice lives in a house by the sea. Every day her family jump, dive and bellyflop off the jetty but not Alice. She is stuck making sandcastles on the shore because she is afraid of the deep.

Based on the much-loved book by West Australian author Tim Winton, The Deep tackles Alice’s fear of the ocean.
