Earthquakes in London

3rd Year BA Actors Rep Season - Bellairs Theatre, Ivy Arts Centre

By Mike Bartlett

“Earthquakes in London still scores highly on the Richter scale.” The Independent

Bartlett’s first large scale work explores the impending crisis that arguably threatens the future of the planet, global warming.  Three generations of a disjointed family are seen at various periods from the innocent days of 1968 to the dystopian disasters of 2525.

Today’s youth feel betrayed by their parent’s lack of morality.  How is life lived under the threat of climate change and impending catastrophe in a society bent on distracting itself from the truth through decadent excess.

 “..a massively ambitious, thought-provoking piece of theatre” British Theatre Guide
