Lost at Sea

By Morna Young. A Perth Theatre review

MARGARET Thatcher's greed-is-good ethos left its mark on everyone in the 1980s, from the high-rolling arrivistes of the stock exchange to Harry Enfield's Loadsamoney. It even found its way to the North Sea, where the creed of individualism was not just unethical, suggests playwright Morna Young, but potentially lethal. Somewhere near the troubled heart of Lost at Sea lies the story of Kevin, a trawlerman, played with angry resolve by Andy Clark, who is brutalised by his quest for money. Where once a crew would stand together, their camaraderie a tool of survival against the elements, now a fisherman would risk going it alone, ever more indifferent to the welfare of his workmates.
