How to Survive an Earthquake

By Christine Croyden

August 2013

Melbourne playwright Christine Croyden’s How to Survive an Earthquake revolves around sisters Steph and Jane, who fell out more than twenty years ago and need to make a seismic shift to repair their relationship.

Caught between first and third world politics, the play tells a tough, tender but uncompromising story about sacrifice, the barriers to forgiveness and how difficult it is to love.
