Synopsis

Based on a true story, four men are sailing to Tonga when their boat overturns in a storm and they spend the next 119 days adrift. Flipside tells the story of what the men went through and then what happened after.

Their survival story is told as a flashback throughout the play. The present day features two of the former ‘shipmates’, as one keeps a bedside vigil to the other who is dying. There are elements of this journey between the two of them that echo what they endured with the others on the boat.

Over the course of the show, the four men confront the elements, each other, and themselves.
