The Climamania Project Stimulus

Having been a Climate Change Activist since late 2002, Alicia Liley proposed to SOUL’s Board at the 2009 AGM that Soul Theatre Inc. produce a production, educating society and the politicians about the incredible seriousness of the Climate Change Crisis – before it is way too late!

Everyone agreed, so as Artistic Director, Alicia searched for a single Playwright for SOUL to commission on this play tackling the Climate Change Crisis

She obtained the performing rights to The Australian Premiere of The Contingency Plan by UK playwright, Steve Waters. The Contingency Plan.

The Contingency Plan is composed of two full length plays, On the Beach and Resilience.

To assist with SOUL’s purpose of this Climate Change message, Alicia had previously curated various other art forms in addition to this production.

These creative events of music, poetry, photography, comedy, poetry and Climate Science speakers are an addition to the combination of Short Plays, with all creative endeavours aligning with the theme of Climate Change.

This has taken shape as Climamania: Festival of Short Plays and Music.

2009 ongoing: The Climamania Project

SOUL will be performing The Australian Premiere of the UK playwright Steve Waters’ The Contingency Plan as a play-reading in 2017.

This script is composed of two full length plays that encapsulate various viewpoints regarding Climate Change, offering a realistic balanced portrayal of attitudes of denial and the reality of the damaging environmental circumstances exhibited by the Climate Change Crisis.

This double bill offers varied scientific opinions, media aspects and of course, the varied political attitudes apparent within today’s reality! With the finality of the public’s confusion as the situation worsens.
