Art Meets Climate Change: Five One-Act Plays

In the fall of 2019, to coincide with the United Nations Climate Conference, Climate Change Theatre Action 2019 presented a collection of 50 plays in 300 places around the world.

This worldwide organization of theater professionals produced pieces written by a broad spectrum of international playwrights, and thanks to Jean Haskell and students from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Temple University, we will get a sampling of these plays.

Each of the five acts will focus on a specific climate change issue, and there will be the opportunity for questions and discussion at the end of the program.
