Earthquakes in London
The enemy is on its way, but it doesn't have guns and gas this time, it has wind and rains, storms and earthquakes.
Meet three very different sisters – Jasmine, a rebellious teenager, Freya, a troubled expectant mother, and Sarah, a passionate cabinet minister. Whilst the sisters navigate personal and political issues, their scientist father predicts apocalyptic climate change. In this intimate, yet surreal story, decades, locations and dreams crash into one another as this dysfunctional family try to make sense and give purpose to their lives.
Sweeping back and forth through time from the 1960s to 2525, Mike Bartlett’s ambitious play focusing on climate change revels in its excess, lurching from hope to despair.
An earthquake is coming. Buckle up.
