‘The sky. The water. The air. It won’t keep snapping back. You can’t keep refreshing the screen. A lie is not a white lie, or a half-lie or a false truth or fake news… It’s a lie and we call it a lie, or everything’s cracking underneath us’

Mona is a young woman on the edge

All she sees is the Earth falling apart, but no one really seems to care

Amidst the chaos of competing and contradictory voices, she sets off on a kaleidoscopic journey to find solutions for the planet – and the truth about her family – in the hope that everything might start to make sense again

Lizzie Nunnery’s Heavy Weather is a powerful, timely play with songs, about one girl’s journey through a world teetering on the brink

It is part of Platform, an initiative from Tonic Theatre in partnership with Nick Hern Books which promotes greater gender equality in theatre by publishing big-cast plays with predominantly, or all female casts, written specifically for performance by young actors

'Thrums with life and urgency' ~

'A great choice for GCSE and A level students… for study it offers some engaging monologues and duologues, and the ensemble is really exciting… a play which ticks a lot of boxes' ~ Drama & Theatre Magazine

'Wonderful… a lovely piece of theatre with great characters for young actors to get their teeth into, familiar issues and situations and lots of humour that still treats the issues very seriously… well worth a look for any teenage youth-theatre group' ~ British Theatre Guide

'A fascinating challenge, with an intriguing role for the ensemble and lots of scope for a compelling visual translation... a young, brilliant director could do wonders with this' ~ Broadway World
