Agile Rabbit: Climate Change Theatre Action

Join us and be part of an annual global event: an evening of short play readings that encounter our changing climate in unexpected ways. Climate Change Theatre Action is a worldwide series of readings and performances of short climate change plays specially commissioned to coincide with the United Nations climate change meetings.

For the 2021 event, 50 playwrights were asked to write 5-minute plays inspired by the Green New Deal and its global equivalents. We encouraged them to show us what their dream future looks like – and how we might get there.

The writers hail from Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Korea, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Uganda, the UK, and the US, and represent several Indigenous Nations.

What might a sustainable and decarbonised society look like? What is the concept of a Green New Deal? And could this become reality

Climate scientists and meteorologists from the University of Exeter and the MET Office have accepted the challenge of reading these plays, introduced by Dr Evelyn O’Malley from the University of Exeter’s Drama Department.

Audience members will be invited to join in the conversation, which is held in partnership with Climate Change Theatre Action and the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter.

Please note the date and location of this event has changed from 2 December in Lyme Regis to 9 December in Exeter.
