'Where the River Meets the Sea' tells the story of Marcelo, a young man unable to forgive himself for past mistakes and committed to ending his life. He is interrupted by a homeless man, Apollonio and the as two of them talk we discover that both hold secrets that better lead to understanding the value of life. How will it end? With a mother's love. Quiet, and unconditional. We are The Inner Six C.I.C. and we are fundraising to produce this beautiful one act play by the Brazilian writer Sérgio Roveri. We have secured 5 dates at the Brighton Fringe Festival and will tour further and finish with a run in London in June 2020. This play deals with heartbreak, homelessness, homosexual love, and suicide and comes with a powerful message for humanity about the need to meet darkness, fear and judgement with the quiet, unconditional love of a mother.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide work for new drama graduates in London
  • Provide awareness of suicide prevention and men's mental health
  • Promotes visibility of LGBQT relationships in the arts

Why it's a great idea:

We genuinely believe this play might save some lives. It explores the radical idea that even those who are guilty or committed grave mistakes are worth saving and that radical forgiveness is the answer to many of society's ills. We hope it will show the value of all human life whether the homeless, the marginalised, those who are far from perfect. All human life has value. And hope and support is there if you know where to look and choose to see it… In producing this play we are also bringing new translations from around the globe to Britain of great works that otherwise wouldn't be seen here, and providing much needed professional performing opportunities to new graduates in one of the toughest industries out there.

Steps to get it done:

  • Raising the fund to cover Brighton Festival
  • Entering Rehearsal Period
  • May 25-31 performing at Brighton Fringe
