In AFLOAT, the climate apocalypse has hit. Dublin’s completely underwater. Best friends Bláthnaid and Debs are the sole survivors, living on the top floor of Liberty Hall.

With only seagulls for company, they spend their days sheltering from the storms and reminiscing over the last days of Dublin.

Debs looks to the future, but Bláthnaid is tormented by guilt. Why were they blind to the wave that was coming? And can they salvage a future from the wreckage?

Afloat Cast: Annettte O’Shea, Eva O’Connor, Michael David McKernan.

“A entertaining and enlightening new play… forces the audience to consider, in very concrete terms, their own role and responsibility in the future of the planet.”
★★★★ – Irish Times
