Nuclear winter has descended upon the globe. The last train out of Paris is boarding. But not everyone will be drawn in the lottery. When Celia and Rhys find themselves awaiting the lottery results on the same bench, they strike up a challenging acquaintance amidst falling bombs and a nameless war, asking the question what kind of world do we live in now... and what happens if they don't catch the train at all? Kara Sevda is performed and produced entirely by members of this year's Masters in Classical Contemporary Text programme at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
