Commissioned for Climate Change Theatre Action
‘What do you want?’ says the penguin. And there’s definite haughtiness in his voice.

An earnest actor grapples with denial and delusion, paralleling the reluctance of people to confront the harsh realities of climate change. Through the humorous telling of a penguin’s encounter with an albatross and a polar bear, the actor reflects on the human tendency to ignore inconvenient truths and choose comforting narratives, ultimately leading to a bittersweet realization.
