What would you do to survive?
As the UK is hit by one-hundred & sixty nuclear warheads, The Other 1% 'Protect & Survive'
monologue series takes you in and around Brighton from the day before to 1000 years after the attack.
Systems at the local council collapse, the hospital can't cope with the human tide and the postman is conscripted to maintain law and order.
What exactly is the farmer feeding her pigs, what struggles will humanity face hundreds of years after a nuclear holocaust and how will language and our relationships evolve?
Brighton-based award-winning producer and director, Simon Moorhead says:
"The piece was inspired by the BBC series Threads. Today, the stories of Protect & Survive are as vital as the lessons the Protect & Survive campaign imparted during the time of the Cold War.
"Each monologue exploring the impact is written by a different writer and voiced by a different actor.
"The entire series is produced, cast and recorded in Brighton and Sussex. We are fortunate to have so much talent on our doorstep."
