Facing The Future: Climate Change Theater, an online short play festival, will be presented by the LAVA Center in Greenfield. In plays penned by 13 playwrights from 3 continents, characters from cerulean warblers, insects, brown bull catfish, and fire to a wide age range of humans plus a couple of time-traveling aliens confront questions of our collective survival. The plays are divided into two programs. Program A (Dec. 4) offers plays of animal perspectives and extreme weather, Program B (Dec. 5) offers food for thought and action. The entire set of plays can be viewed on demand between Dec. 6-8. The plays are written by Lindsay Adams, Sara Becker, Kay Bullard, Patricia Crosby, Colette Cullen, Stephen Fruchtman, Nina Gross, Jan Maher, Rex McGregor, Michael Nix, Candace Perry, Vanessa Query and Karen Shapiro Miller. Twenty-eight actors from as near as Greenfield and as far as Dublin, Ireland and Auckland, New Zealand bring it all to life via Zoom. For details: https://thelavacenter.org.
