It’s Wine O Clock! When do you stop? Imogen and Rich don’t care if the glass is half full or half empty, as long there is wine in it that’s what’s important. That’s how they unwind, how they party, how they deal with the stresses of life; young children, high powered jobs. But after twenty years of drinking to excess, Imogen is having second thoughts. She’s tired of waking up with an unexplained bruise, tired of beating herself up when she’s drunk too much, tired of being tired, but is it enough? When life has become so intertwined with the powerful nectar is it easy to break away, or do relationships start to unravel? Perhaps a wake -up call is all she needs? Filled with humour and drama ‘Soaked’ seeks to unnerve.

Cumbrian Emma Rydal is an actress and writer. She has had a successful career in theatre, television and radio. Notable film and TV roles include Stella in the BAFTA winning Brit flick 'East is East', Miranda in Charlie Higson's 'Swiss Toni' and Mikey in Kay Mellor's 'Playing the Field'. Recently she has been seen as regular 'Celia' in Sky One's Stella.

Soaked has already had favourable reviews and has received funding from the Arts Council England and Cumbria County Council. Emma also received mentoring and support from the Rosehill Theatre in Whitehaven, where the play will premiere. The play is directed by Peter McQueen, stalwart of the Theatre by the Lake. He has also toured with his one-man shows ‘Old Herbaceous’ and ‘The Professor of Adventure’. The cast for Soaked comprises Emma Rydal, Toby Gaffney and Madeleine Joseph.
