"We did not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we are borrowing it from our children"
Rogue Machine’s west coast premiere of “Earthquakes in London” is an immensely powerful and inventive play precisely because it is about so much more than its theme, climate change.
Three sisters are left to raise and care for one another after their mother dies and their father abandons them. Now adults, the sisters find themselves navigating a 21st century London that is at the precipice of both an existential and an all-too-real environmental crisis. Will the sisters succumb to despair? Or will they find a way to face the crisis head-on, embracing both the inevitability of an imperfect future and the possibility of hope?
Running in rep with Neil McGowan’s new hit, DISPOSABLE NECESSITIES (Critic’s Choice – LA Times), both plays are crafted by extraordinary playwrights who build complex worlds with precise internal logic. They allow us to see ourselves within our own world, with fresh eyes. Together they give audiences a look at what may be in store for our future, but not necessarily what should be.
Written by multi-award winner Mike Bartlett, directed by John Perrin Flynn and Hollace Starr, the cast includes Michael James Bell, Ava Bogle, Zoey Bond, Ron Bottitta, Turner Frankosky, Anna Khaja, Kaitlin Kelly, James Liebman, Jeff Lorch, Kevin Phan, Sara Shearer, Taylor Shurte, Jonathan P. Sims, Paul Stanko, Christian Telesmar, Mari Weiss, Miranda Wynne.
