Synopsis
 
Earthquakes in London is a co-production between the National Theatre and Headlong Theatre.

An all-pervasive fear of the future and a guilty pleasure in the excesses of the present drive Mike Bartlett’s play from 1968 to 2525 and back again. A co-production with Headlong Theatre, Earthquakes in London is directed by Rupert Goold, with a set by Miriam Beuther in which the audience can sit on barstools around the curving stage.

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.

    'It’s Cabaret, we’ve got our heads down and we’re dancing and drinking as fast as we can. The enemy is on its way, but this time it doesn’t have guns and gas it has storms and earthquakes, fire and brimstone.
editors' note: See Robert Butler's blogs on the production on Ashdenizen: ten things you need to know about 'earthquakes in london'; four stars, preachy, or lightweight; when it's not either/or; guess who?.
