Eco-drama aims to educate a new audience

Playwright Karen Malpede says that “We know we cannot save the Earth until we change the stories people tell.” And she’s aiming to do just that with her new eco-play “Extreme Whether” that puts family fights about climate change on stage. There’s an indiegogo campaign going on now to mount a full NYC production in March 2014 with an endorsement from climate scientist James Hansen. I’m all-in for connecting people with climate science however we can, including the performing arts that can reach hearts as well as minds.
