THE GREAT BIG GREEN WEEK EVENT TO BE HELD AT NEW VIC AHEAD OF SUSTAINABLE THEATRE SHOW

A PLAY FOR THE LIVING IN A TIME OF EXTINCTION



New Vic Borderlines is teaming up with Climate Matters Staffordshire and North Staffs Friends of the Earth to host displays and activities for The Great Big Green Week next week, the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature.

Exhibitions and workshops will take place on Monday 12, Wednesday 14 and Friday 16 June between 10.30am and 5.00pm in the Lounge at the New Vic, with an official opening on Monday 12 June at 1pm from Climate Matters Staffordshire Patron Joan Walley. No pre-booking is required to attend the events during the week.

The event is held ahead of the New Vic’s ground-breaking sustainable theatre experiment in partnership with Headlong Theatre Company and the Barbican’s Katie Mitchell, A Play for the Living in a Time of Extinction, a play powered entirely by bicycles.

On the New Vic stage from Monday 19 to Saturday 24 June, Newcastle Tri Club cyclists will provide the power live on-stage for the one-woman show starring Danielle Henry (Playhouse Creatures, Queens of The Coal Age, Votes for Women), with additional vocals from a New Vic Community Company Choir.

Directed by Eleanor Taylor (Around the World in 80 Days, Treasure Island) and brought to life by the New Vic’s resident creative team, it is the first tour of its kind in the UK and sees a play tour the country while the people do not. Part of an experiment reimagining theatre in a climate crisis, it is a timely production that takes audiences on a life-changing journey to confront the urgent ecological disaster unfolding around us.

A Play for the Living in a Time of Extinction takes to the stage at the New Vic from Monday 19 to Saturday 24 June 2023. Tickets are on sale now, priced at £20.00 or £15.00 for Under 25s. For more information and to book call the Box Office on 01782 717962 or online atnewvictheatre.org.uk.


Other Climate Matters Staffordshire Patrons include Jonathon Porritt and Jeremy Lefroy.
