Earth. The near future. When technology brings the world to the brink of disaster, a new regime decides to dream it all up again: the children.
Round Went the Wheel opens in a waiting room, fitting for a play about the nature of time. For David, every second that passes is a frustrating reminder of his lack of purpose in this brave new world. Today is different: he’s invited for a rare interview with the “Boy”, the leader of the retro-revolution. But David’s wife, Eloise, has other plans: she’s pregnant, and a baby in this world will surely be taken. With time running out, will she risk everything to protect her child?
Featuring a generation-spanning cast of eight, this dystopian thriller imagines a future built from the pillars of the past. It’s time…to begin again.
