Background


Directed by Matthew Warchus, Claire Foy and Matt Smith make their Old Vic debuts in Duncan Macmillan's hilarious emotional rollercoaster of a play, as a couple wrestle with our planet's biggest dilemmas.

Synopsis


'I could fly to New York and back every day for seven years and still not leave a carbon footprint as big as if I have a child.


Ten thousand tonnes of CO2.


That's the weight of the Eiffel Tower.


I'd be giving birth to the Eiffel Tower'
