    "How do you explain away fact? How do you explain away scientific evidence?"

    So asks a character in this short play which should be required viewing for climate-change deniers. A lovely little showdown between the voice of reason and the willfully ignorant.

    A fantastic piece for climate change that magically transports us to the scene, exploring a wonderful relationship between a granddaughter and grandfather. Well done!

    This is an amazing short play for many reasons. It brings to your attention an important issue of climate change. With that issue, it develops the emotional relationship of granddaughter and grandfather, each with a distinct need/desire and back story. That relationship is further developed theatrically with a memorable showdown in the last few pages --a spectacle of lyricism, sound, and imagery. A great challenge for a sound designer. Share this with a sound designer friend--and maybe he/she can get in touch with a director. Contains one of the best stage directions OF ALL TIME!!!
