In 2013 and 2014, Soul faced personal and organisational challenges, which meant that no productions were realised in those years. 2015 offered the opportunity to present several Short Plays on Climate Change that were waiting in the wings. Soul registered for the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Festival with:

28 September – 4 October 2015: C5 – Climamania Event Number 5, The Climamania Mini-Festival of Short Plays and Music

which also included comedy and poetry.
