Overview

“Can you feel it? Something is hanging in the balance – ready to fall.”

1854. New York. Eunice sits in what will become Central Park and wonders if something is going horribly wrong.
2027. London. Clare falls in love as the streets begin to flood.
2100. Svalbard. Ana hears a baby crying in the seed vault.
The world is ending, sure. But what happens in between?

After DONOTALIGHT‘s critically-acclaimed show¬†(I Know I Know I Know ¬†Southwark Playhouse), comes a fresh, fast-paced, and funny play. Covering 250 years of climate crisis, this is a powerful story about holding onto hope and humanity against all odds.

 

A Jermyn Street Theatre and DONOTALIGHT Co-production
