As Waters Rise
Audio Drama by Ben Weatherill, Directed by Alex Brown
16 Jul — 18 Jul 2021
It’s rising. I know that sounds…but it’s the truth. It’s getting higher. And I remember saying if the rain doesn’t stop…then…
It’s summer and London is underwater.
In a broken world that was broken long before they were born, a group of young people grapple with the aftermath of the flood. When everything changes, what does it take to keep afloat no matter what?
Written by Ben Weatherill (Jellyfish) and directed by Alex Brown, As Waters Rise is a new audio drama performed by the Almeida Young Company (14-18) about friendships and anarchy, resilience and anger. About the consequences of our actions, and who really pays for them.
A Q&A will take place at 7pm following the release of each episode with members of the company and creative team.
As Waters Rise is part of the Shifting Tides festival.
