Climate Change Theatre Action at Artists Rep

Around the world this fall, on the occasion of the Paris climate talks, actors, directors, and playwrights are gathering on the boards to support climate activism in the best way they can: through live performance. Performances around the United States and abroad are taking place throughout the months of November and December, and Portland is no exception.

On Tuesday, November 24th at 7pm on our Morrison Stage, Artists Rep is teaming up with Boom Arts and Theatre Without Borders to present an evening of short play readings to cultivate conversation and inspire action around climate change. The evening is part of the Climate Change Theatre Action and presented in support of local non-profit 350PDX, a volunteer organization working to build a community grassroots solution to stop climate change. Admission is free, although the folks at 350PDX will be on hand to take donations if you'd like to support their work. 

Portland’s evening will feature brand new plays and excerpts of works on the theme of climate change by local playwrights Noah Dunham (Action/Adventure Theatre), Miriam Feder and Rich Rubin, presented alongside works by national and international playwrights including Wendy MacLeod, Elaine Avilla, Naomi Iizuka, Deborah Asimwe (Uganda), Dipika Guha (India), Chantal Bilodau (Canada) and August Shulenberg*. Director Tracy Cameron Francis has organized the evening and will be directing a local cast of theatre community favorites.

We hope you'll join us for a stimulating evening of theatre ad discussion!
