Wild storms, hurricanes and extreme flooding, The Storm Officer tells the tale of one town’s struggle when faced with the realities of extreme weather and the impact of climate change. Inspired by real-life stories of Storm Desmond (2015) and tales of bizarre and dramatic weather events from the last thousand years, this funny, touching and bold play is brilliantly interwoven with live music and song.
The Storm Officer explores what it means to still call somewhere home in the face of adversity.
