An island in the South Pacific has a problem. It’s hollow. Anxiety levels are rising in a North American boardroom. Eav’s garden is bursting with next door’s rubbish. Even the ducks have relocated…they’re in Bangladesh.
Scientists, farmers, oil magnates, climate warriors, prophets, mothers, journalists and others just like you and me – we’re all in the mix and hungry for a recipe of hope. In the struggle over power, some sound the warming bell, some blow hot and cold, while others make a pudding of the planet.
Vivid, sharp and deliciously entertaining, BAKED ALASKA serves up the realities of climate change with flair and clarity about the temperatures involved.
In the high-energy, ‘seriously funny’ style for which Riding Lights is well known, BAKED ALASKA is something we can all look forward to… unless we do something about it.
Extra-ordinary theatre for these extraordinary times.
When: 7.30pm, Tuesday 10th November.
Where: St John’s Centre, St John’s Road, Old Trafford, M16 7GX
