Play in a Day tackles climate change

The Arcola Theatre in north-east London is to host a Play in a Day event in conjunction with Climate Week, the largest climate change campaign in Britain.

Five teams of writers, directors and actors have just 24 hours to create a 15-minute theatre piece on the subject of climate change on Friday, March 16th.

Fans of alternative theatre breaks will find a lot to enjoy about this unique approach to stage productions, which will showcase creative solutions to the global challenge of climate change.

Although the premise may be slightly gimmicky, Climate Week has got an array of award-winning individuals from the theatre world to get involved.

These include Cathal Cleary and Ellen McDougal from the Olivier Award nominated production Ivan and the Dogs.

Climate Week is taking place from Monday, March 12th to Sunday, March 18th. The aim is to reinvigorate interest in the impact climate change is having on the world, and what can be done to tackle it.

The scope of Climate Week is huge, with 3,000 individual events aiming to attract half a million people across the country.
