While cocktail-swigging Gail concerns herself with shopping and her husband buries his head in the sand, their teenaged daughter, Ellie, predicts the end of the world. The weather is alarmingly erratic, and there's an enraged poltergeist in the kitchen. The Weather premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in October 2004.
