Presented by The Blue Room Theatre and Alexa Taylor
On the opening day of this year’s United Nations Climate Change talks (COP23) in Bonn, The Blue Room Theatre is hosting an evening of play readings about climate change. This event is presented as part of Climate Change Theatre Action (CCTA) – a worldwide series of readings and performances of short climate change plays which is asking the question in 2017 “How can we turn the challenges of climate change into opportunities?”
The evening will see readings of a handful of very short plays written as part of the global CCTA initiative, along with excerpts from three full length Australian plays – two established Griffin Award winners and one new West Australian work currently in development. The readings will be followed by a facilitated group discussion and informal musings in the bar.
In responding to a problem as complex as climate change, theatre opens up myriad possibilities – to think, feel, understand, and respond in different ways. Come and join us for a beverage, have a listen, and voice your say.
When: Monday 6 November, doors open from 5.45pm for a 6pm start.
Where: The Blue Room Theatre
Who: All are welcome – theatre-makers, change-makers, audience members and artists alike

Why: Because even if theatre does not quantifiably change the world, it can play an important part in starting the conversations and actions that do
