"A highly promising satirical dystopian debut play"
A Made in Colchester production
Imagine. The USA has pulled out of NATO and refugees from the Ukraine are flocking into Western Europe; while, on a ‘fake beach’ somewhere in Middle England, Will, Max, Yana and Marta are gathered to find out whether the unfolding general election is really going to put a populist party into power and change their lives forever.
Europe After The Rain is a highly theatrical and hugely funny exploration of what waking up in a post-EU Britain might feel like. Winner of the Mercury Playwriting Prize 2017, Oliver Bennett’s first full-length play is a comedy about immigration, globalisation, love and loss.

"It’s not often a politically charged work of this type can feel so fluid and familiar and uninvasive to watch"
"This thought provoking and entertaining new play is worth catching!"
