Megan Furniss' "The Deep Red Sea" Comes to Life

The Deep Red Sea is a love story, told in words, and music. It’s about love… and power… and… love.  It’s about loss… and pain… and grow...



The Deep Red Sea is a love story, told in words, and music. It’s about love… and power… and… love.  It’s about loss… and pain… and growing. It is about the sea… and lies… and the act of creating.

Megan Furniss wrote The Deep Red Sea in 2011 and has been waiting to perform a full performance of this prose poem. Here, long-time collaborator Tandi Buchan directs with musical accompaniment by James Harvey.

The Deep Red Sea is an exploration of the facets and phases love, as well as an exploration of narrative form.  Megan says, “I believe this piece is meant to be listened to, to be heard. The words should be a trigger into the visual, both literally and metaphorically.”

Megan Furniss is a playwright, writer, performer and improviser. Her work is original, challenging and strange, which is why her relationship with the Alexander Bar and Theatre is so special – an intimate venue that encourages experimentation and a departure from the mainstream.

Alexander Bar. 7pm 20, 21 May
