AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Having lost a lifetime of research in the worst floods Sydney has witnessed, Daniel - a climatologist and advisor to the government - isn't in the mood for appreciating the irony of what he should have predicted.

'Paralysed by the knowledge that the world is consuming itself, Daniel takes little joy in planning for his future - somewhat of a problem for his spirited other half, Fiona. When Fiona tells Daniel they're about to start a family, Daniel must choose between what he knows and what he loves.

'An urgent and searching new play about the most pressing issue of our times, Between Two Waves asks an anxious, warming world: how do we find happiness in the face of an uncertain future?

'A politically charged relationship drama set against a climate change backdrop, Between Two Waves is the first play to be produced out of the Griffin Studio, by one of the most talented new voices in the country.'
