HOW TO SURVIVE AN EARTHQUAKE

by Christine Croyden

How to Survive an Earthquake is a reunion drama about sisters, Steph and Jane.

Steph is a UN peacekeeper and trained nurse, who suffers from PTSD and has been on a mission in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. She returns home on the eve of her mother’s funeral to her estranged sister, Jane.

The action moves seamlessly from earthquake-stricken Haiti to suburban Melbourne and gradually, through a series of revelations, develops into a complex study of betrayal – not only of the genetic and metaphorical sisterhood but also of its ideals and principles.
