Climate Change Theatre Action 2021: A Global Green New Deal

Recurring Event see all

November 20 @ 11:30 am 1:30 pm EDT

The LAVA Center is proud to present Climate Change Theatre Action 2021, a series of readings of climate change-themed short plays, open for all community members to participate in. This is LAVA’s third time affiliating with CCTA.

The LAVA Center invites all community members, regardless of their theatrical experience, to join us in reading the plays. At each of the events, we will be reading four or five of the short plays, and then hosting a discussion of the issues raised in the plays. The events will take place on Thursday evenings and midday Saturdays through October and November. This event is funded in part by Greening Greenfield, concerned citizens building a more resilient Greenfield by advancing sustainable practices.
