The Ruins of Civilization

Sometime in the future, Dolores (Rachael Holmes) and Silver (Tim Daly) are living their married life within the constraints and norms of a new world order. In an act of what seems like pure generosity, Dolores secretly opens their home to a stranger in need; but will she come to regret it? Can her actions have an impact or is it just too late? A bold world premiere thriller, The Ruins of Civilization explores our need for free will and connection, even in a world on the brink of extinction. It's the latest work from Penelope Skinner, the award winning author of The Village Bike.
