Summary

I want you to imagine me in a crowd of people. It’s 2030 and the mean temperature this summer has been 40 degrees celsius. It’s midday. The sun is nuclear hot. There have been spontaneous outbreaks of fires round the country the closest to us in Epping forest, a monster conflagration which raged for 3 weeks.

A woman stands alone on stage. She has one hour to change our future. One hour to avert catastrophe. She’ll give everything she has.

Addressing the climate emergency head on, Extinct includes testimony from environmental activists. Extinct opened at Stratford East in June 2021.
