The Great WaveSet in Japan and North Korea, The Great Wave, Francis Turnly?s epic new thriller about teenage sisters caught in a tsunami is directed by the Tricycle Theatre's Indhu Rubasingham. The play, which premieres in the Dorfman Theatre, focusses on teenage sisters Reiko and Hanako. When a vast wave engulfs a Japanese beach, Hanako is lost and Reiko survives but their mother cannot accept that Hanako is gone.

About National Theatre: Dorfman Theatre

Replacing the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme.
