It’s a disaster – but a lot of fun

I’ve always found apocalyptic scenarios fascinating. The Road and On the Beach are both fascinating explorations, from very different perspectives, of the end of society.

It’s a Disaster is similarly a take on the end of society, or the world, but with a different theme. It starts with a couple’s brunch, riddled with the usual internal tensions and fraught histories, and then lets a nuclear disaster simmer and bring all the internal contradictions and disasters to the top.

It’s beautifully played, with a manic intensity that veers perfectly between hilarity and a sense of the tragic. Intricately plotted, and a delight to watch.
