SING ME TO THE SEA is a multisensory adventure for children and young people with complex needs created by Bray-based theatre director Anna Newell – www.annanewell.co.uk in collaboration with composer David Goodall – www. dgoodall.co.uk – whose work together has been seen off-Broadway and in South Africa as well as touring extensively in the UK and Ireland.
