Between Two Waves
“There's a tipping point where it becomes impossible to reverse. We said it would be here in five years. Ten years ago. And now it's too late”
When a freak flood sweeps through Sydney, Daniel, a young, brilliant climate scientist, loses a lifetime of research. He should have seen it coming and having just accepted an important advisory position within government, his job is to do just that. But his advice to prepare for the worst is falling on deaf ears.
Knowing how the future looks presents Daniel with a moral dilemma. Can you bring a child into a world, knowing that world will be at the mercy of cataclysmic changes in climate? Certainly for his girlfriend Fiona, there is no question about having a family and the news that a baby is on the way brings Daniel’s crisis of morality crashing into their lives.
Between Two Waves is a vital new play about one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. A touching, funny and moving love story that taps into our anxieties for the future and the moral dilemma of bringing up a family in the face of climate change.
The South Australian premiere of Between Two Waves is supported by the State Theatre Company of S.A. through their Umbrella Program and by Arts SA through their Independent Makers and Presenters Program.
“Between Two Waves is the kind of theatre that makes you feel rather than think, the kind of theatre that bypasses your brain and gets you in the soul”, Australian Stage
“Between Two Waves boldly takes on some incredibly profound questions. The result is a work of immense and lasting impact”, Time Out Magazine
