The plot

Rockville 2069 is a futuristic rock musical that is, at heart, a love story set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world and steeped in the philosophies that characterise the rebellion of the 1960s and 70s, as well as those that are currently shaping our world.

The story tells us of an Earth that has been destroyed by man's neglect and climate change - however one small archipelago of islands, known as Rockville, survives and is now home to a group of peace-loving rockers, sound technicians and musicians, who were celebrating 100 years of the Woodstock festival of 1969. As the only known survivors of breathable land left on earth, they create a protective force field that shelters them from the frozen wasteland and toxic fog that is Earth. And in order to regenerate this vital shield with resonating sound waves, their musicians play each day at dusk and dawn.

But their harmony and calm doesn't last long as a group of ragged outsiders wish to take control of their utopia and so a tale of betrayal, treachery and greed unfolds - only to be saved at the very end in an epic "battle of the bands" fuelled by loyalty and love.
