Poetry People presentsPearls From The Grit

Pearls from The Grit is the entertaining new show touring nine performances to six venues across Suffolk this autumn. Written by Dean Parkin, the show is part of a year-long Heritage Lottery funded project about Lowestoft’s almost forgotten fishing village known as The Grit.

 

In the early 1900s Lowestoft was one of the country’s leading tourist resorts. The Grit — home to 2,300 people, three schools, churches, shops and 13 pubs was the most easterly point. What made it such a special community and place to live and why did it disappear in the 1960s?

 

Using the words of his great friend Jack Rose as a guide, writer and poet Dean Parkin travels back in time to piece the story together. Meet no-nonsense fisherman, old Ned; Billy, a larger-than-life skipper during Lowestoft’s fishing boom; and Ruby, one of the tireless taskforce of women keeping the fishing industry afloat. At the ‘pub’ piano, Sam will provide live music throughout. Together, they’ll deliver a surprising, tender, entertaining family show.
