London Evening Standard Award for Best Play of 2011
‘a satisfyingly witty and thought-provoking production’ - Time Out
'The performances are all first rate' - Sunday Herald Sun
Dr Diane Cassell is a fiercely intelligent scientist lecturing in what has become the cool degree at university: Earth Sciences. But with popularity comes pressure to conform. So when her controversial report on rising sea levels hits the press and brings her university's official position on climate change into question, will she be in over her head?
Noni Hazlehurst stars in the Australian premiere of this UK hit play; a bitingly funny, provocative drama about family, truth, and what can happen when you go against the grain of public thinking.
Warning: contains strong language. Thinking of bringing young people to the theatre?
