Meet The Team
Breakwater Theatre Company was set up in late 2012 and its first performance was held at the Beach Restaurant in Cleethorpes in March 2013. The company was the brainchild of actress Sara Beasley and writer Andy Evans. They have been joined by other members including Karen Richardson, Ben Parkes and Joseph Parfrement but the core has always remained as the two initial founders and creatives. The aim, to promote new writing for the stage and to provide opportunities for writers to see their work performed on stage to an audience.
