The New Group Off Stage and NRDC proudly present
Facing the Rising Tide:
A free digital festival of play readings and conversations about environmental racism, the climate crisis and hope.
With these online readings of new plays by five extraordinary emerging writers, we are celebrating the ways truly imaginative art can get our minds working in new directions around the climate crisis and the impacts of environmental racism. The playwrights’ characters are pressured by their circumstances to decide and act, and these stories, whether they are depicting real, recent crises or possible futures that we hope to avoid, let us locate ourselves and the choices we face in a rapidly, radically changing world.
Each reading will be followed by a discussion with a climate expert and members of the creative team
