Buckhaven-based theatre company Collision kicks off a busy summer as it presents a world premiere of its new production The Tide Creeps In at Buckhaven Theatre on Friday.

Created for the National Theatre of Scotland’s forthcoming international festival Exchange 2016, The Tide Creeps In explores the nature of memory and identity and will be performed by a cast of five.

After performances locally on Friday and Saturday, the Collision team will travel to the MacRobert Arts Centre in Stirling, where they will represent Fife at the week-long residential youth theatre festival Exchange 2016, from July 3 to 10.

Alongside theatre companies from New Zealand, USA, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Greenock and West Lothian, Collision will participate in theatre skills masterclasses and workshops by day, with public performances taking place each evening.

The Tide Creeps In will also be presented as part of the Edinburgh International Festival Fringe 2016 programme, with performances taking place at the Edinburgh Academy on August 11 and 12.

Clara Bloomfield, Collision artistic director, said: “Everyone at Collision is incredibly excited to present our latest show to the people of Buckhaven, before we head off to represent Fife alongside some incredible theatre makers from across Scotland and around the world, working with the National Theatre of Scotland.

“And then we take part in the largest arts festival in the world!

“It’s a summer of amazing opportunities for our dedicated team of young people and we’re proud to fly the flag for Buckhaven!”

The Tide Creeps In runs at Buckhaven Theatre in Lawrence Street this Friday and Saturday at 7.30pm.

Tickets for the show are priced £6.50.
