This rehearsed reading of selected extracts from Earthquakes in London by Mike Bartlett is part of A Climate Emergency, a series of events showcasing extracts from plays about climate change.

It started decades ago when a brilliant scientist predicted global catastrophe.

Now, three sisters attempt to steer their disconnected lives, loves and fear of the future...can they survive?

Could you ignore the scientist, even if he was your Father?

Earthquakes in London was first performed in August 2010 at the National Theatre (Cottesloe Theatre) as a co-production with Headlong Theatre.

Bartlett's work includes BAFTA nominated series Doctor Foster, King Charles III, Cock and most recently the critically acclaimed Albion.

This event is a rehearsed reading of selected extracts, directed by Rhiannon Hannon and read by professional actors working from scripts in hand, performing without sets or costumes putting the writing of Earthquakes in London and its message front and centre of a lively discussion on climate change issues with the audience, cast and director.

This ticketed event is free, however numbers are limited.

This event is part of Wakefield Council's Festival of the Earth.
