"I'm not prepared to be the minister who consigned Nelson's column to the North Sea."
Rising tides and colossal waves threaten to sink the U.K. Our only hope is a bright young glaciologist, somewhat reluctantly recruited by an increasingly desperate, newly-elected Tory Government. Torn between two ministers, our protagonist finds himself the victim of departmental rivalries, cautious advisers and a distaste for acronyms; when action is finally taken, will it be too late to avert a national crisis?
First performed in 2009 at the Bush Theatre, Resilience is genuinely chilling in its prediction of events that have happened since, and even more so as a prediction of a not unrealistic future.
"'Resilience' [...] for sheer emotional intensity, has no rival on the London stage"
The Guardian

"The playwright Steve Waters combines the satirical scariness of J G Ballard with the silken argufying of Bernard Shaw or David Hare: it's a total bust as the Antarctic glaciers melt and Skegness is threatened with extinction"
The Independent
