Lighting the Way is a collaboration of four directors at Graceland University in Lamoni, IA, who chose three CCTA short plays each to create an evening of Climate Change Theatre Action. The following 12 CCTA plays will be featured:

Hassan Abdulrazzak – LAILA PINES FOR THE WOLF
Joan Lipkin – ABOUT THAT CHOCOLATE BAR…
Hanna Cormick – CANARY
Paula Cizmar – APPEALING
Alister Emerson – SIX POLAR BEARS FELL OUT OF THE SKY THIS MORiNING
Jordan Hall – THE DONATION
Sunny Drake – ABSOLUTELY NOTHING OF ANY MEANING
Brian Dykstra – TWO VOICES
Madeline Sayet – BLOOD ON THE LEAVES
Damon Chua – STEAMY SESSION IN A SIGNAPORE SPA
Elspeth Tilley – LIN AND ASH
Chantal Bilodeau – IT STARTS WITH ME

After each performance there will be a talk back session with the audience to open a dialogue about what we can do now to take climate action. We will not provide paper programs and will instead project the program during pre-show. It is also the mission of the scenic designer and technical director to use only stock scenery and recyclable materials for the set design, so at the time of strike all scenic material can be either reused or recycled.
