An absurdist farce with deeply troubling undertones, this play explores why humans are unable to take control of their lives vis-a-vis the growing climate disaster. Using humor, a love triangle between three women and a struggle for control of an invention that makes carbon emissions visible, it shows how greed, desire, sex and selfishness overwhelm our ability to master our own fates. The play is narrative theater in style and features a live, original jazz/blues score played by cellist and singer/poet Serena E. Miller. Directed by Pitr Strait
