Climate Change Theatre Action 2021: A Global Green New Deal

Climate Change Theatre Action 2021: A Global Green New Deal

Saturday, November 20, 11:30 am until 1:00 pm
The LAVA Center, 324 Main St.

The LAVA Center is proud to present Climate Change Theatre Action 2021, a series of readings of climate change-themed short plays, open for all community members to participate in.

Founded in 2015, Climate Change Theatre Action is a worldwide series of readings and performances of short climate change plays presented biennially to coincide with the United Nations COP meetings. This is LAVA’s third time affiliating with CCTA.

Every other year, 50 professional playwrights, representing all inhabited continents as well as several cultures and Indigenous nations, are commissioned to write five-minute plays about an aspect of the climate crisis based on a prompt. This year’s prompt is “Green New Deal.”

The LAVA Center invites all community members, regardless of their theatrical experience, to join us in reading the plays. At each of the events, we will be reading four or five of the short plays, and then hosting a discussion of the issues raised in the plays.

Your hosts will include local artists Patricia Crosby, Nina Gross, JuPong Lin, Jan Maher, and Vanessa Query.

The events will take place on Thursday evenings and midday Saturdays through October and November.

This event is funded in part by Greening Greenfield, concerned citizens building a more resilient Greenfield by advancing sustainable practices.
