The Highest Tide


The beach talks to Miles O’Malley. Obsessed with all things aquatic, 13-year-old, stature-challenged Miles loves combing the tidal beaches near his Puget Sound home in the middle of the night. When one of his discoveries lands him unexpectedly in the news, he is launched into involuntary celebrity, shaking his world in a way that is only topped by the Nisqually earthquake. A sensory experience emanates from the pages of local author Jim Lynch’s bestselling novel, which instantly transports us beneath the waters of a marine world teeming with infinite life and exquisite possibility.

The role of Miles O’Malley will be played by two different actors:
Sun 20th, Wed 23rd, Fri 25th: Leo Conklin
Tue 22nd, Thu 24th, Sat 26th: Jack Brotherton
