Tightrope Theatre in association with Park Theatre presents the World Premiere of

Cold Water

Written and Directed by Philippa Lawford

When I’m walking with her the whole time I’m imagining I’m with someone else.

Who do you imagine?

You, sometimes.

After university, Emma moves back with her parents in Hertfordshire and gets a job at her old school, assisting in the Drama department. Before long, she’s spending every day in the studio with Matt, her boss. Matt decides to teach Emma everything he knows, and Emma feels her life starting to change.  

Cold Water is a play about wanting things so much you can’t do anything about them.  


Praise for Ikaria, written and directed by Philippa Lawford:

★★★★★ ‘Theatre is alchemy, but not the impossible kind. You can have all the right ingredients and mix them in the right quantities and produce something shiny - but to spin gold, you need something indefinable. The reviewer can't quite explain what that is and I doubt theatremakers can either. But when it's there, you see it - and it's there in Ikaria.’ Broadway World
