"Waters’ massive achievement is to have made the most important issue of our times into engrossing theatre.” The Guardian on The Contingency Plan
Steve Waters’ climate-emergency double bill is brought bang up to date, specially revised for this Sheffield run. One play is a compelling family drama, the other a thrilling political satire. Each stands alone, together they’re a fearless, funny and foreboding portrait of a near future.
