Tuesday 04th Nov 2014 by theWeather Club

Royal Court Theatre, Sloane Square, London, 5th-15th Nov 2014

This month, the Royal Court Theatre in London’s Sloane Square will be presenting 2071. For this new work, writer Duncan Macmillan has been talking to one of the world’s most influential Climate Scientists Chris Rapley. Working with internationally renowned director, Katie Mitchell, a new piece of theatre has been created with science at its core.

To accompany 2071, the Royal Court will be hosting two related events: In Conversation with Duncan Macmillan, Chris Rapley and Katie Mitchell as they discuss the creative process and themes explored in 2071 (post show Tues 11 Nov, free with a ticket to that evening’s performance) and Day of Action – A variety of workshops, discussions and lectures to provide practical ideas for making small changes in our own lives to help counteract climate change. The day will include sessions on: fixing electrical appliances, consumer choices, transport, personalised energy efficiency advice, Transition Towns, and the psychology of climate science. We’ll have short plays about climate change from writers aged 14 and under, and also by international writers about the effects on climate change in their home countries. (Sat 15 Nov – tickets on sale soon).
