The Forecast

In a backyard near you, in the not-too distant future, four women from four corners of the globe float in mid-air.

Fleeing war, poverty and environmental destruction, they now have a new job:

Human garden ornament.

As the reality of what they have signed up for, and who they are literally stuck with, becomes clear, what unites and divides them will be paramount as they struggle to endure the ordeal.

Inspired in part by George Saunders' "The Semplica Girl Diaries" and developed in collaboration with Olivier-award winning writer Bola Agbaje, Limbik’s latest show weaves stories, songs, secrets and shadows into a startlingly bold, bonkers prediction for the days ahead.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.


Limbic System, noun, an interconnected system of nerves and networks in the brain that interprets feelings in the body.

Limbik creates new theatre work that explores human stories from epic environments.

We create through collaboration, improvisation, movement, music, atmosphere and imagery.

We like to go on research trips: we seek out Ghost Towns in California, fishing communities in Northern Island and Specialist nurses in hidden corners of the NHS.

We question, we investigate, we debate, we distill, we share.

We also make nice meals.
