Rapid Departure

David Rankine and Ross Allan are currently on tour with Right Lines Theatre Company’s production RAPID DEPARTURE from the 27th February – 9th March 2016.

A freak flood has washed through the area and the locals are guided to the safety of the Village Hall, the designated Emergency Rest Centre.

Environmental calamities are on the increase, but are we prepared and how would we cope? Plunged into the fraught world of the rural Rest Centre, the evacuees and officials grapple with the ever-deepening crisis both outside the Hall – and in!

In this immersive comedy, our five characters are desperately trying to keep their heads above water as the Emergency Plan is swept away before their very eyes!
