Tremor- Sherman Theatre

The Tremor of Brad Birch’s title is anything that ripples and rips through our lives, from the personal relationship of the two characters to the aftermath of the shared event that ripped them apart. For Tom (Paul Rattray), it’s when his ex-girlfriend knocks on his door after many years (and many ignored emails), ripping through the new life he has created. His Ikea-build house, with his wife and son on their way home, compete against the reminder of his past with Sophie (Lisa Diveney). Birch layers this with far bigger questions – what if the event that tore their relationship apart was a tragedy, and what if there were consequences and questions beyond just the personal?
