What might an equitable, sustainable, decarbonized, and just society look like? Join Downstage and Immigrant Council for Arts Innovation for an evening of short plays by international playwrights, commissioned by Climate Change Theatre Action, as part of this global theatre series. Stay for a lively, facilitated panel discussion centered on the ever-evolving topic of climate change.
Climate Change Theatre Action will feature both newcomer and established local theatre creators as well a panel of community leaders who are actively engaged in important climate action. In the lobby, there will be local immigrant artisans who will sell their work and keep 100% of the profits. Enjoy a night of theatre, conversation and stock up on holiday gifts from exciting local makers.
