Looking forward to a visit @theatrepeckham@theatrepeckhamrep tonight to see ‘How To Save The Planet When You’re A Young Carer And Broke’ by multi-award-winning writer Nessah Muthy, a new production exploring the intersection of black working-class identity and climate change activism. This comic, slightly outrageous and complex piece aims to explore some of the most pressing issues facing all of us today. Directed by @stefodriscoll Stef O’Driscoll (A History of Water in the Middle East by @sabrinamahfouz Sabrina Mahfouz; Lit by Sophie Ellerby) it is a provocative exploration of the themes of class, being a young carer, legacy and existence.
Commissioned by @boundlessabound Boundless Theatre, the work responds directly to conversations and provocations from Boundless’ Advisory Group and community of 15-25-year-olds who are demanding urgent responses to the climate emergency. This mobile, adaptable and sustainably made production represents a new model of working post-pandemic and will be performed in the heart of communities across London, in partnership with schools, young carer groups, climate activists and community organisations. Through collaboration with climate justice activist Daze Aghaji, the production will empower young audiences, particularly those under-represented in the current climate movement, to find ways in which they can be climate activists in their own lives.’
