ADDRESSING THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE OF OUR TIME
Oh, what do we have here?
It’s the Climate Change Theatre Action 2019 Anthology!
That’s right! Edited by Chantal Bilodeau and Thomas Peterson, Lighting the Way: An Anthology of Short Plays About the Climate Crisis includes 49 inspiring plays by writers from around the world commissioned for Climate Change Theatre Action 2019, plus an introduction by Chantal Bilodeau and essays by Julia Levine, Charissa Menefee, Thomas Peterson, Triga Creative, and Brooke Wood.
Responding to a prompt asking them to “give center stage to the unsung climate warriors and climate heroes who are lighting the way toward a just and sustainable future,” the writers offer a diversity of perspectives and artistic approaches to telling the stories of those who are making a positive impact.
We couldn’t be more proud of this book and hope you’ll like it as much as we do.
