Hastings College Theatre is hosting “Climate Change Theatre Action” at 7:00 p.m. October 21 at the Scott Studio Theatre (806 N. Turner Ave.).
Climate Change Theatre Action (CCTA) is a worldwide series of readings and performances of short climate change plays presented to coincide with the United Nations COP23 meeting. COP23 is the informal name for the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Fifty writers from around the world wrote very short plays of 5 minutes or so that address an aspect of climate change. As part of CCTA, 180 collaborators have signed up to present events in 41 countries.
At Hastings College Theatre’s event, readings of some of these short plays will be made by individuals from various campus departments, students from Hastings High School and people from the community.
There is no admission fee for this event, but guests are asked to bring nonperishable foods or toiletry items that will be donated to the Hastings Foodbank.
