On Station Eleven

Station Eleven begins with death. On stage, an actor, Arthur Leander, collapses while performing King Lear. From then on, the story follows several people connected to that death. There’s Jeevan, a freelance journalist, who is in the audience the night Arthur dies, and there’s Kirsten, a young child actor also appearing in the show, who watches him collapse from the wings. There’s his ex-wife, Miranda, who saw him a few days before his final performance, and his best friend and lawyer, Clark, who is travelling to Arthur’s funeral when the flu hits. Oh, yeah. I forgot to mention Station Eleven also chronicles the fallout from a mysterious flu that kills people within hours and has a mortality rate of 99%.’
