TWO DEGREES
Staged reading of a climate change play by Tira Palmquist
8:00 pm
Ramo Auditorium

BRIEF SYNOPSIS:

A cool new play about frozen people on a thawing planet.

Emma Phelps is a paleoclimatologist, focusing on ice in Greenland. She sees first hand what we have wrought in terms of climate change, and now all she can think to do is continue to study, to amass data, to publish. She’s also a recent widow and, until now …. all she can do is study, to amass data, to publish. Now she’s asked to come to Washington, DC to testify in a Senate Committee regarding climate change legislation, and she finds more than just a little is breaking up under the strain of change.

Director Joshua Wolf Coleman is known for his acting roles in the films Multiple, Mr. President, and Hidalgo and such TV shows as How To Get Away with Murder, Castle, Scandal, Parenthood, and Grey’s Anatomy. Josh performed the role of Clay in a reading of "Two Degrees" at The Road Theater.
