The end of the world. The beginning of the next.
Premiered 21st - 31st of July
at Northcote Town Hall
The world has changed. There’s no fresh water and machines have taken all the jobs. Attempting to give his life meaning, Bowen signs up for an experimental medical procedure where ‘Heroes’ can be euthanised, donating their bodies’ water back to the community. Anita, his ‘Giving Consultant’, claims to be there just to ease his passage, but as they spar we learn that Anita is doing a lot more than just her job. She dreams of a future where we burn it all down and start again.
From multi-award-winning duo Double Water Sign; the makers of GROUND CONTROL and MORAL PANIC, this searing new work of science-fiction is the story of an angry young man and the woman whose job it is to kill him.
Shortlisted for the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award, HYDRA asks ‘What parts of ourselves will we have to kill to survive the end of the world?’
