BWW Review: RAIN AND ZOE SAVE THE WORLD, Jermyn Street Theatre Photo BWW Review: RAIN AND ZOE SAVE THE WORLD, Jermyn Street Theatre
by Cindy Marcolina - Feb 18, 2022

Being seventeen is hard enough without having to shoulder a climate emergency. At school, Zoe (Mei Henri in her first stage appearance) is a paladin of justice and Rain (Jordan Benjamin) is the new boy who just moved to the neighbourhood. While protestors gather on the east coast to rally against the big corporation East Coast Energy Solutions, the girl convinces Rain to set out on a cross-country trip to find her mother and save the world in the same breath. Crystal Skillman’s play is a dreamer’s guide to heroic activism. It’s a piece with good intent, euphoric in its stagecraft but unconvincing in its story.
