The New Group, along with our students at LIU Brooklyn, are partnering with Climate Change Theatre Action (CCTA) 2021 to present two evenings of 5-minute plays, commissioned by CCTA from 50 playwrights from all over the world. The prompt – “envisioning a global Green New Deal” – inspired passionate, wild, and hopeful artistic responses that challenge us to radically reimagine our current path, our future climate, and our future on Earth.

Tune in to these live-streamed staged readings, spark conversation, and imagine new and future realities alongside us. Featured playwrights include:

Giancarlo Abrahan – THE WHISTLER
Keith Barker – APOLOGY, MY
Nicolas Billon – THE PENGUIN
Paula Cizmar – THE PAGEANT
Erika Dickerson-Despenza – HOW TO HOLD WATER: A SPELL FOR ADAPTIVE LIVING
