Summary:Written for the Big Brum Theatre-in-Education company, 'At the Inland Sea' is a strange, searing, dream-like play, showing a child coming face to face with humanity, and all its horror and neglect. As a boy prepares for the first day of his exams, fussed over by his mother, he meets a woman from the past, and her baby, and the soldiers with rifles who are coming to take them away. The woman tells him about the hardness of her life, and demands a story from him, which will stop the soldiers, but the boy can't find one that will work. Following his desperate search for a story to save them, the play is a struggle of imagination and compassion, the crux of humanity.
