What's OnV256


You're just quietly preparing for civilisation to collapse and really, we couldn't ask for anything more as neighbours Raf and Harry have well-paid jobs, a lovely semi in leafy Barnes and a brand new second residence in the heart of Wiltshire. In the neighbouring field, Claudia and Peter have a chewed up vegetable patch, a carbon-neutral yurt complex and an absolute conviction that the apocalypse is imminent. Raf and Harry invite Claudia and Peter over for an apology meal after a misguided midnight call of nature in the field. Pleasantries however soon switch to politics and the pulled pork is replaced by pulling punches once they discover just how much they disagree over. Except the flatbreads that is. Everyone does agree they really are delicious. As the hosts test the commune members' commitment to their cause, the night descends into all-out anarchy... and the consequences prove to be apocalyptic. In an uncertain age where the threat of global disaster continues to linger, ?Catastrophists' is a darkly comic play all about class, cooking and communes - and whether any of us are quite as civilised as we like to think we are.
