WEST PIER RISING by Stella Willow

About West Pier Rising

West Pier Rising creative team. Sam Devereaux, Georgie Devereaux and Stella Willow.

In April 2024, Flying Pickle Performing Arts joined forces with playwright Stella Willow to produce her new play West Pier Rising. Stella’s play is a highly physical and emotive look at the history of Brighton’s derelict, Grade I listed West Pier. The play combines the life story of architect Eugenius Birch with the English history that shaped the pier’s life and Brighton’s as a premier resort town.

The production will be directed by Flying Pickle’s Head of Theatre, Georgie Devereaux. The cast will be lead by Sam Devereaux as Birch. Flying Pickle’s production of West Pier Rising is set debut in 2025. An extensive workshopping and development period begins in spring 2024. Further casting announcements will be made in due course. Check back often to follow the play’s development and enjoy sneak peaks into the production process of a new play.
