July 28-Aug.4: Real Live Theater develops a new script, Far Reaches, culminating in a public reading/sharing. Ellen Morbyrne , co-founder of RLT, has written a first draft of a play called Far Reaches, in the genre of Cli-Fi (Climate Science Fiction, a genre of fiction that deals with the impacts of climate change and global warming). This full-length, two-person piece is set in a world of endless oceans where people live exclusively on rafts. It is a play that does invite audiences to consider the impacts of their own choices regarding climate change, but it is primarily a play about connection: How do we remember, and what do we remember? How do we survive, and how do we thrive? What are the ways in which we are different from one another, and what do we share in common? What happens to us in isolation, and what is connection worth to us? A workshop/staged reading version of the play will be shared with the public with a talkback and informal reception on Sunday, August 4 (Time to be announced).
