How to Survive an Earthquake

This event has finished

Melbourne playwright Christine Croyden’s latest work, How to Survive an Earthquake tells the story of two estranged sisters who reunite after 20 years of separation. Set in the tragedy of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Stephanie, a UN civilian peacekeeper and Jane, the caretaker for their ill mother, have a relationship based on guilt and blame. In the setting to their mother’s funeral, they are forced to find a way to forgive.
