EARTHQUAKES IN LONDON

Headlong & National Theatre Tour
Director Caroline Steinbeis, Set Designer Lucy Sierra, Original in-the-round Cottesloe Design Miriam Buether, Costume Designer Katrina Lindsey.
Burlesque strip shows, bad dreams, social breakdown, population explosion, worldwide paranoia. 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.
An all-pervasive fear of the future and a guilty pleasure in the excesses of the present drive Mike Bartlett’s epic rollercoaster of a play from 1968 to 2525 and back again.
