The water rises to Lisbon. The rain is ceaseless. The thunderstorm mutters.
The snow and the ice recover Marseille.
And the youth in Europe gets bored, hesitates and stutters.
Until the arrival of the urgency : the Wapiti wave, the expected cataclysm. Four young people meet in Lisbon. Hunted by the global warming, accompanied by a strange being, they will board on a zodiac in Marseille, to Africa. On the other side of the sea, the hope to reconstruct a brand new world.

Wapiti Waves is a play that crosses the words heard in the mouth of today’s youth. Combatives or resigned, altruistic or selfish, confused, funny, provocatives.
