The Glowing Red Planet

  • Carmen Rivera

Commissioned for Climate Change Theatre Action
Sometimes at night, I look through the telescope, and I hope to see a blue planet again.

A family faces the devastating aftermath of a nuclear war on Earth. As they prepare to leave the dying planet, a mother grieves the loss of her baby and reflects on the beauty of their homeland. Decades later, her granddaughter listens to her stories and dreams of a blue Earth.
