December 5 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm PST
The accelerating chain reaction of extreme climate events can only be countered by an equal and opposite change reaction of people dedicated to transformation.
Experience a dynamic selection of short plays from around the world, written to capture the potential of this urgent historical moment. The performances use humor, poetry, absurdity, physicality and drama to inform, challenge and inspire. We will spark hope for the hopeless, insight for the ignorant, action for the apathetic and energy for the engaged. Get ready to be part of the Chainge Reaction.
The program is approximately one hour followed by dialogue and community building.
These plays were selected by our ensemble from a collection of 50 international plays commissioned by The Climate Change Theatre Action 2021. They include:
Nicolas Billon – THE PENGUIN
Thomas Peterson – PAYING FOR IT
Chris Thorpe – NOT BECAUSE WE’RE GOOD
Alister Emerson – MOO! BE QUIET! LAMBCHOP’S SECRET MISSION TO STEAL EVERY COW IN THE WORLD
