Nick Darke's play is a comedy set in Padstow in which two fishermen, suffering the effects of the new quota system, are wondering how to supplement their income and decide to go in for a little extra-curricular smuggling.
The dodgy local character with whom they are dealing is playing a double game with them, and also with the daughter of one of the fishermen.
Although the play is a comedy, topically post-Brexit it raises interesting issues about concerns and challenges faced by fishermen who feel that they have again been let down despite all the pre-Brexit talk of protecting them.
It also raises issues about sustainability in the environment.
