The year is 2107  and Jay has just started work at a mysterious government agency. But when faced with a terrible choice, he soon discovers his dream job has a dark side… A futuristic tragicomedy exploring climate change, bureaucracy and betrayal.

Praise for Rupture

‘Drawing on the recent political upheaval both in the UK and US, Sweet’s play  Rupture  is set in a dystopian future, where main character Jay finds himself conflicted by a newfound role at the government agency he works for. Using genuine and current socio-political concerns such as global warming, state control, and international conflict,  Rupture  offers audiences a glimpse into a worrying future not so distant or unrecognisable from our own.’ gal-dem.com

“Easily up there with some of Black Mirror’s best work. Hilarious, moving and capable of some deft sci-fi slights of hand, Rupture’s script is one the best sci-fi stories produced this year.” -Carl Anka (The Independent/HUCK/Joe.co.uk)
