The Storm Officer

by Matt Black

So when sun shines, we watch the planes
And finest grapes hang off the vine,
So let’s drink on, and when it rains
We’ll measure rain as pints of wine...

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.
