The play tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Antrobus, their children Henry and Gladys, and their maid Sabina as they deal with the effects of the ice age, impending flood, and war. Written during World War II, the play depicts humans’ ability to triumph over disaster and resonates with our current issues of climate change and international tensions. The play interweaves the main narrative with the difficulties faced by the theatrical production, bringing the idea of adversity to the present.

With a large cast that includes both community members and Fisher students on stage and in the crew, the production will be staged throughout Cleary Family Auditorium in Kearney Hall, offering an intimate theater experience for the audience.

The show will run at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 30, in Cleary Family Auditorium in Kearney Hall. Tickets, which can be purchased , are $10 for community members and $5 for Fisher students, staff, and faculty.
