    Brilliant and Exciting! This is intensely theatrical and timely! Wow - I won't forget this soon - and it made me think, holy shi$%^! I too live on an island!

    Heartbreaking and timely - a call to arms on climate change action. Moving piece, highly evocative, and powerful in its brevity!

    Builds from a gripping first image toward a memorable and terrifying end. SWALLOWED is an opportunity: a quick, intense play with a necessary call-to-action that gives a director and three actors the chance to shine.
