Earthquakes in London

Electric Lodge
1416 Electric Ave Venice

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we are borrowing it from our children. Three sisters are left to raise and care for one another after their mother dies and their father abandons them. Now adults, the sisters find themselves navigating a 21st century London that is at the precipice of both an existential and an all-too-real environmental crisis. Will the sisters succumb to despair? Or will they find a way to face the crisis head-on, embracing both the inevitability of an imperfect future and the possibility of hope? Earthquakes In London, by one of the UKs most searing of contemporary playwrights, Mike Bartlett (Cock, King Charles III, Bull), tackles our chronic inability to act in the interest of our future generations.

Broadway World - Somewhat Recommended

"...The West Coast premiere of Mike Bartlett's immensely powerful and inventive play EARTHQUAKES IN LONDON by Rogue Machine at the Electric Lodge in Venice centers on a multimedia examination of the causes of climate change through the eyes of a modern family as they struggle to make sense of it all during a time of societal disconnect, corporate greed, and fractures within their own lives."

Shari Barrett

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Epic in its scope and timeframe, intimate in its intersecting family dramas, bleak in its depiction of a world doomed by climate change, and as thrillingly theatrical as stage storytelling gets, Rogue Machine's West Coast Premiere of Mike Bartlett's Earthquakes In London is sure to be one of the season's most talked-about productions."

Steven Stanley

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Earthquakes in London is essentially a family character study laid out on a big canvas. Bartlett's writing is sharp and funny and moving, and while his ultimate message is one of hope, he also makes clear the possible consequences of our flawed stewardship of the planet. "The earth knows what it wants. It wants to get rid of us." It's a stark statement in a striking play and a great production."
