Text written as part of the National Dramatic Centre’s Dramatic Residencies programme during the 2021-2022 season

An exceptionally heavy snowfall forces Barbara to give birth trapped in a bar where they serve squid. A wave of extreme heat alarms a group of young people working in the street. The flooding of a town puts an end to Richard and Ana’s plans to run away. A fire in Moscow destroys the city and the friendship between three girls. A chemical threat will force Alex and Malena to make the most difficult decision in their lives, as they contemplate what may be the end of the world. Five catastrophes. Five cities. Five genres. Five stories emanating from a changing world in which a series of young people will have to face not only an uncertain future but all its consequences.
