Let’s Inherit the Earth

About Let’s Inherit the Earth

A punk musical comedy with a brilliant Scottish and Swedish ensemble.

It’s 2031. Adele has just hit number one with her new album, 43.

Somewhere in the Caribbean, three turtles are staring in disbelief and helplessness at the expanding patch of seaweed which threatens to destroy their habitat. The seaweed spreads towards luxury beach-front condos, owned by the super-rich Mucklefannys of the Highlands and the Storskinkas of Sweden. Their concern is the threat to the value of their properties and the quality of their cocktails!

In Moray, Jane and Grant have stocked up on weaponry, an inflatable canoe and Marmite in case of an “event”. Sure enough, the North Sea floods in and the geography of northern Europe is transformed.

Meanwhile, the forests of Sweden are on fire. Josef, Tove and their child Lukas are frantically packing as the fire approaches. Lukas asks about granny stuck upstairs. She’s not really a cockroach like daddy says, is she?

The refugees from the fire and the flood meet in the wilderness, unsure of what country they are actually in. No sign of granny.

The turtles swim for safety as the condo owners metamorphose and bake, welcoming the sea lapping at their balconies – saves them the walk to the beach. What’s a turtle’s favourite cocktail?​​

Let’s Inherit the Earth is a dark, funny, absurdist take on human responses to climate change, from the arch materialist who denies it, to the prepper obsessed with getting ready for it, come hell or high water!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Let’s Inherit the Earth are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
