Shorelines by Mishka Lavigne

Shorelines takes place in a not-too-distant future, where sea levels have risen to critical. Entire shorelines are being redefined as levees and containments breach. Crumbling cities are abandoned by the rich, leaving only the disenfranchised behind. In one of these dying cities, twins Alix and Evan find refuge in an abandoned swimming pool; Gran, lost in the shadows of her shattered mind, represents the voice of the past, and offers a glimpse into everything that may have happened; and Portia, now a high-ranking government official, returns to familiar places. Shorelines is a non-linear poetic play where memories of the past and the urgency of the present collide.
