The Woodhouse Players present 'Resilience' by Steve Waters - 20th, 21st, 27th and 28th May 2016.
"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 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"
Please note: This production contains strong language throughout.
