Burnout – Live Theatre

June 2, 7:30 pm - June 3, 7:30 pm

Two women sit facing each other in a pool of water. One of them holds a match between them, the other tilts a water bottle so that water pours out of it. They look at each other with serious, concerned expressions. This is a scene from the Live Theatre production Burnout.

Amara meets Bridgette at one of those ‘hippy, green, save-the-planet’ protests. She just popped out to grab some milk and now she’s late – and there’s a flood coming.

Bridgette is a committed activist. Amara’s about to finish her GCSEs. Their town’s been flooded. Again. But how’s getting arrested going to help anything? They can’t afford to do that.

This production has been created with climate activists across the UK and explores themes such as flooding, burnout, racism and eco-anxiety. Audience members are invited to interact at moments throughout the play if they wish.
