The story of Wilfrid, a navel-gazing twenty-something with family from “somewhere else”. But when Wilfrid’s father passes away and the talking corpse demands to be buried in the place of his birth, his slacker son is swept up in the absurdities, contradictions and horrors of a global village at war. At once hilarious and horrifying, epic in scale and deeply personal, Tideline was an imaginative fable which echoed the playwright’s Lebanese heritage.
