International Climate Crisis Plays

Royal Court Theatre 

The Royal Court Theatre returns to the Edinburgh International Festival for a major new residency that will culminate in a week of lunchtime performances of new short plays written by some of the most significant international new voices.

The five writers from Brazil, China, India, South Africa and Syria will share urgent perspectives from across the world on the global climate crisis through plays specially commissioned to premiere at the festival.

The International Climate Crisis Residency is part of You Are Here, a new season of performances, conversations, readings and fresh thinking. Passionate artists from around the globe invite you to explore where we are now and, more importantly, where are we headed.
