The enemy is on its way

Earthquakes in London

Written by Mike Bartlett
Directed by Cressida Brown
Designed by Angela Davies


The enemy is on its way, but it doesn’t have guns and gas this time, it has wind and rain, storms and earthquakes.”


Meet three very different sisters – Jasmine, a rebellious teenager, Freya, a troubled expectant mother, and Sarah, a passionate cabinet minister.

Their scientist father predicts apocalyptic climate change, whilst the sisters navigate personal and political issues in this intimate, yet surreal story. Decades, locations and dreams crash into one another as this dysfunctional family try to make sense and give purpose to their lives.

Sweeping back and forth through time from the 1960s to 2525, Mike Bartlett’s ambitious play focusing on climate change revels in its excess, lurching from despair to hope.

An earthquake is coming. Buckle up.

Students relaxing outside of the School
The School is in a beautiful part of Bristol, overlooking a huge park called the Downs. We sometimes take advantage of our close proximity to the Downs during the summer term, practising fight and dance routines, or voice or singing classes! Dan Hall, BA Professional Acting student
