Grace Darling play tours the North East

Two Tyneside writers, Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood, are taking a play about Grace Darling on a tour of the North East. She is the Northumberland woman who rescued shipwrecked survivors in a rowing boat despite rough seas.

The 'Amazing Grace' tour starts on October 17th, travelling from Berwick to Hartlepool. It isn't a straight forward play though. It's about an actress playing the heroine.
