Festival: 2017 – Where is the Hope?

Climate Change Theatre Action 2017 took place October 1 – November 18, 2017 to coincide with the United Nations Climate Conference in Bonn, Germany (COP23).

Close to 140 collaborators in 23 countries hosted events, reaching an audience of 12,000. In the US, 90 events took place in 60 cities. Plays were read and performed, live and on radio, and presented in a variety of settings including: theatres, high schools, middle schools, universities, yoga studios, community centers, libraries, churches, museums, cafes, bars, people’s living rooms, and outdoors.

The plays are published together in Where Is The Hope? An Anthology of Short Climate Change Plays available from the York University Bookstore. The anthology is also available from your domestic Amazon.
