The Contingency Plan

Steve Waters's chilling contemporary drama imagining a government in crisis as it deals with the biggest storm to hit Britain since the 1950s.

By Steve Waters.

A powerful new version of the play originally staged at The Bush Theatre in London, addressing the subject of climate change. As Britain faces unprecedented and catastrophic floods, government and scientists argue over what action to take. A young glaciologist arrives in Whitehall determined to convince the powers that be of the importance of immediate action. But he is also bent on avenging his father, a scientist whose views were discredited a generation ago.
