Description

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 explores loss, sisterhood, and climate anxiety. From the makers of Fringe First winner, Mustard.

Fantastic show, really well acted and great cinematography too. It reminded me a lot of the play Enough that I saw at the Traverse back in 2019, but with a climate focus. Great job to all involved.

Impactful and entertaining show, I really enjoyed it! It is of course very contemporary but at the same time, it gave me some classic sci-fi vibes -in a surprising turn of events-, which kept me engaged till the end. Definitely recommend!
