NGYT Theatre Company Presents –
Be Still The Tide

A journey of self-discovery and acceptance as we live through the overwhelming waves of anxiety and fear. Dance studios, comfy corners, hilltop hideaways and Stadium sanctuary. Good days and bad days, safe spaces to speak or drown in unentered silence.

‘Be Still The Tide’ ebbs and flows on the shores of our lived experiences, sharing our unique voices through music, movement, storytelling and verse – where hope hears reality and survival stands taller than the never-ending waves.

Running time: 2 Hours 15 Minutes including a 30 minute interval.

Age Guidance: 14+ due to themes, language and content.

Content Warnings: References loss and depictions of grief, themes of mental health, depicts anxiety and references suicide (not depicted).

Theatre Auditorium will remain open after ‘Be Still The Tide’ for mindful reflection. The Foyer and Café/Bar will be open after the shows for mindful journalling.
