Earth Odyssey 2020: Scientific and Artistic Exploration of our Rapidly Changing Planet
Author’s Notes: Climate change needs a different kind of heroism. You see it when you look at organizations like Project Drawdown: A heroism of endurance, of everyday work. I was thinking this when I stumbled on an Atlantic article about climate anxiety and suicide, which promptly smashed into Fry’s glittering springtime comedy, The Lady’s not for Burning, and here we are. Though this is (hopefully) a comedy, climate anxiety and depression are serious, and I’d love for you to post a resource for anyone who might be affected at the end of the performance.
Finally, I’ve written Jen and Tommy as a woman and man in homage to Fry’s characters. I invite you to recast them freely as any combination of genders and adjust pronouns accordingly.
