70 Million Tons

by Terri McKinstry

directed by Chanda Calentine

 

God has had it. She gave us a beautiful planet with beautiful animals, beautiful land, beautiful oceans, beautiful air, and beautiful minds with which to make it even more beautiful. Is that what we’ve done? No. And she’s pissed! Fortunately for us humans, Ozie (the much abused ozone layer) has convinced God to give us one final chance. Unfortunately for us, She’s tasked the most extravagant and wasteful director on the planet (Billie, “Broadway’s Barracuda”) to save us all from another Great Flood. Can Big Bucks Billie herd her cast and crew, who are expecting to perform Shakespeare, into Not Again, Noah!, a modern farce set in Brooklyn, on bare budget Off-Off-Broadway? And most importantly, can they make it environmentally friendly in an hour? If not, let the rain begin! A light-hearted look at the environment and the challenge of reducing our carbon footprint, this family-friendly production is a mix of poetry and action. As the protectors of our planet, every one of us must make choices and changes that will put us on a more sustainable path. Audiences are encouraged to bring items to the show – water bottles, cardboard boxes, unused clothing, anything! – which will be re-used during performances, then recycled or donated to an appropriate organization. Laugh and learn with us… make a difference.
