Enjoy an evening of excerpt readings from several Boston playwrights followed by a conversation between the creative teams and experts.
In collaboration with the Museum of Science, Flat Earth Theatre has commissioned several new plays from premier Boston playwrights, including MJ Halberstadt (The Launch Prize, That Time the House Burned Down), Flat Earth co-founder Kevin Mullins (A Southern Victory, Citizens of the Empire: a Space Opera), Nina Louise Morrison (Born Naked, Google Doll), and Francisca Da Silveira (Heritage Hill Naturals) that focus on issues of climate change. Over the course of Flat Earth Theatre's 2017 – 2018 season, the playwrights will be matched with climate change scientists and experts to study, learn, and understand the issues present in their plays.
The project culminates Friday, May 4 with an evening of excerpt readings of the finished plays for the public at the Museum of Science, followed by a conversation between the creative teams and experts to illuminate how artists and their work can contribute to the important conversation and debate around climate change advocacy and policy-making. Book signing to follow.
