Kill Climate Deniers Audition Notice and Artist Call
World Premiere of playwright/activist David Finnigan’s hyper-real story for the stage, told in the style of an action film, that looks squarely into our battle against man-made extinction. “What happens when the unstoppable force of climate change meets the immovable object of politics?” The pulse of 1990s techno sets the tone at a Fleetwood Mac concert, during a gala at the Australian Parliament, as a swarm of eco-terrorists storm the building and take the entire government hostage, threatening to execute everyone unless Australia ends global warming. Tonight.
