Written by Ken Duncum
Directed by David Collins
In April 1989, four men set sail for Tonga from New Zealand. Three days out they ran into a gale and their boat capsized. The men huddled together in a tiny compartment in the hull. Drenched by freezing seawater, with most of their gear lost, the four strangers crammed into a compartment just six and a half feet by four and a half feet, struggling to survive. A strong will to live bound them together as each man’s strength and character was truly tested.
Based on the true survival story and the book Capsized (written by one of the survivors), Flipside chronicles the tale of the four men adrift in the South Pacific for a record 119 days, as they confront the elements, each other, and themselves in the overturned boat, Rose-Noëlle.
This is the Australian premier of this riveting drama and psychological thriller. With a stellar cast of Brighton regulars and up-and-comers, it’s another BTC production not to be missed!

2020 SEASONS 2 + 3
The Brighton Theatre Company Management Team has made the sad decision to cancel our Australian premiere of Flipside by Ken Duncum, as well as our production of Bakersfield Mist by Stephen Sachs, our 2020 Season 2 and Season 3 shows, respectively. The decision was made following Australian Government guidelines and restrictions, and in consultation with medical professionals in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. All ticket purchases will be refunded.
At this time no decision has been made surrounding our other upcoming seasons. We will provide an update on these productions in due course. If you have any questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
