Show Info

By Brad Birch
Directed by David Mercatali

With Lisa Diveney and Paul Rattray

Sophie and Tom's relationship fell apart in the aftermath of a catastrophe. Four years later, as they come face to face once again, the aftershocks of that fateful day can still be felt.

Tremor is an intense new play about how we choose to see things and live in a world riven with tension, anxiety, and division.

Following their acclaimed run of Iphigenia in Splott in 2017, Sherman Theatre returns to 59E59 Theaters with this thrilling World Premiere production.
