Between Two Waves

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.

Simultaneously global and local, Between Two Waves is an urgent and searching new play that examines the effects of climate change, not on ice shelves or policy, but on human behaviour and emotion. Taking planetary predictions and compressing them down to personal tipping points, Between Two Waves asks an anxious, warming world: how do we find happiness in an uncertain future?
