China Plate and Staatstheater Mainz presents

A Family Business

A show about how not to blow up the planet.

We don’t really talk about nuclear weapons much.

Even though they accompany us everywhere.

Invisible guests in cafés, on the shelves of supermarkets, in line at the cash machine.

Guests that could destroy all of that and more in a second.

A Family Business is about diplomats, activists, and a journey to change the world. If these weapons could wipe out all our tomorrows, then why aren’t we all talking about them today?

Supported by Warwick Arts Centre and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
