Description:  It’s a summer evening in a small cottage on the east coast of England. Hazel and her husband Robin have retired here for a quiet life – he tends to some cows, she has time for yoga. 

But, not long ago, their seaside idyll was disrupted by a powerful natural disaster. An earthquake and the tsunami which followed have torn apart the nearby nuclear power plant. Rolling blackouts are now commonplace and there’s an exclusion zone around the plant.

Into this situation steps Rose, an old friend and colleague of Hazel and Robin. As the three of them reconnect, secrets and past infidelities are revealed. But the greatest challenge to their friendship is still to come. In a new climate of scarcity, survival is everything.

Cast Breakdown:  All the characters are witty, smart, nuclear physicists in their 60’s;  forty years ago were very close friends and working partners. They can each be played by actors of any race or ethnicity.  Light British dialects. Their names reflect their characters.

ROBIN:  Impish, loves women, and is very attractive to women: “…two women in the plant and you were getting it off with both of them.” A joker, a trickster. Sick with radiation poisoning (coughing blood, tired) feels the need to do something about the disaster, risking his life already to clean up—all this he hides from his wife. Smokes on stage.

HAZEL:  Married to Robin. Mother of four, she a woman who “holds up the world.” Organized, controlling, has worn sunscreen every day for 40 years. She eats salads and does yoga; fighting her aging. Volatile, anxious now; changes quickly. Jealous of Rose and suspicious of her sudden appearance. Had made up and revives the 60’s dance they all perform in unison, again, on stage. 

ROSE:  Alluring. Orchestrated an affair with Robin for decades; hasn’t seen Hazel for 38 years and Robin for five. Cool because she’s looking for the moment to ask them both for their help, looking for how to tell them she’s no longer a threat to their relationship. She needs their cooperation. On a mission to take responsibility and help control the disaster. She has had breast cancer and must be wigged and have very short hair or appear bald. Smokes on stage.
