100 Plays to Save the World (Paperback)
This book is a guide to One Hundred Plays addressing the most urgent and important issue of our time: the climate crisis
100 Plays to Save the World is a book to provoke as well as inspire--to start conversations, inform debate, challenge our thinking, and be a launchpad for future productions. Above all, it is a call to arms--to step up, think big, and unleash theatre's power to imagine a better future into being.
Each play is explored with an essay illuminating key themes in climate issues: Resources, Energy, Migration, Responsibility, Fightback, and Hope.
100 Plays to Save the World is an empowering resource for theatre directors, producers, teachers, youth leaders, and writers looking for plays that speak to our present moment.
