The European Premiere of The Gulf by Audrey Cefaly is an honest representation of the challenges all relationships can endure, no matter the sexuality. It looks at two women on a small fishing boat in the Gulf of Mexico and what makes their relationship tick.
The divide between Kendra, played by Louisa Lytton and Betty, played by Anna Acton, mimics the very world that devours them: a vast and polarizing abyss. Stranded on a boat together, they are forced to confront their differences and untangle the issues they’re faced with.
The message in society that a ‘significant other’, preferably of the opposite sex, is the answer to feeling complete and happy, is always present. Through bickering, insults, self-help books and physical and emotional game playing the audience discover, along with Betty and Kendra, the substance to their relationship and their future together.
The Gulf is at Tristan Bates Theatre until 5th May 2018.
