THE CONTINGENCY PLAN by STEVE WATERS at The Donmar Warehouse and Theatr Clwyd

TCP 2020

The country is threatened by a catastrophic flood. What can we do to stop it?

STEVE WATERS updates his critically-acclaimed double-bill of plays about the climate crisis, in a timely co-production by the Donmar Warehouse and Theatr Clwyd.
