Part of The Contingency Plan, a double bill of plays from the frontline of climate change - an epic portrait of an England of the near future, in the grip of unprecedented and catastrophic floods.
In Resilience, the Tory Government that has just come to power wants radical answers to the imminent floods. Their newly appointed expert, Will Paxton, puts an extreme scenario on the table: England, from its coastline to its capital, faces catastrophe.
Steve Waters' play Resilience was first performed as part of The Contingency Plan at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2009.
Resilience can be presented on its own or as part of a double bill with On the Beach.
