Goucher Radio Theater: Listens to the Environment

Staged Reading of Plays from the Podcast Series

Goucher students will perform a staged reading of six short plays about the environment and climate change. The six plays are available as a series of podcasts produced by the theatre program but this performance will allow audiences to experience the work live. Additionally, the audience will hear six original musical compositions in their entirety. The music was written and performed by a team of Goucher students to accompany each podcast episode.

Five of the plays were commissioned by Climate Change Theatre Action and anthologized in “the future is not fixed”:

Paying for IT by Thomas Peterson

Book of G by Nelson Diaz-Marcano

Apology, My by Keith Barker

DreamSong by Heidi Kraay

The Pageant by Paula Cizmar

One play, Human Invasion was written by Kristen Wheeler a junior minoring in theatre.

Climate Change Theatre Action is a worldwide festival of short plays about the climate crisis presented biennially to coincide with the United Nations Conference of the Parties. It is a U.S.-Canada collaboration between the organizations, Arts & Climate Initiative, and the Centre for Sustainable Practice in the Arts. The festival uses storytelling and live performance to foster dialogue about the global climate crisis to inspire action. It operates on the principle that complex problems must be addressed through collaborative efforts.

We are proud to be a small part of this initiative that uses theatre to broadcast and make immediate and understandable the work of our fellows making policy and science.
