A double bill from the frontline of climate change

In On the Beach, glaciologist Will visits his parents on the Norfolk coast

With catastrophic flooding growing more likely by the day, he has news that forces long-submerged secrets to rise to the surface

In Resilience, Will, freshly appointed as a scientific advisor, is in Westminster

Surrounded by ministers, and faced with the threat of environmental disaster, can he get them to listen before it's too late?

Impressive in scale and chilling as a prediction of our immediate future, the two plays were revised and revived by Sheffield Theatres


The Plays " ... are about the most pressing issue we face today whilst also being a rip roaring thriller, a complex family drama and a political satirical farce ... Each stands alone, together they’re a fearless, funny and foreboding portrait of a near future" ~ Theatre Weekly
