Deluge

Skeleton Key Theatre (Ottawa, ON)
Subtitles available in English and French

A rock concert on rising seas, Deluge follows climate change refugees and their struggle to survive in an unpredictable environment. When pregnant Callie survives the sudden flooding of her coastal town, she and the only other survivor, a teenager named Lewis, seek to escape their situation through a fantastical musical journey of their own making. Allowing music to transport them to other times and places, the pair unpack their pasts as they recalibrate their futures. Accompanied by a band of ghost musicians, they are forced to confront whether or not humanity is brave enough to face our present moment - and take action.
