Earthquakes in London

By Mike Bartlett

Paperback £10.99

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

An epic rollercoaster of a play travelling from 1968 to 2525 and back again, driven by an all-pervasive fear of the future and a guilty pleasure in the excesses of the present.

It’s Cabaret, we’ve got our heads down and we’re dancing and drinking as fast as we can. The enemy is on its way, but this time it doesn’t have guns and gas it has storms and earthquakes, fire and brimstone....

Earthquakes in London includes burlesque strip shows, bad dreams, social breakdown, population explosion, worldwide paranoia. It is a fast and furious metropolitan crash of people, scenes and decades, as three sisters attempt to navigate their dislocated lives and loves, while their dysfunctional father, a brilliant scientist, predicts global catastrophe.
