Because revolution is better at night.
What would it actually take to stop climate change dead in its tracks? Guns? Revolution? A pumping soundtrack?
It's Kill Bill meets Tim Flannery, and it's all true. The science is real. The media fracas is real. Only the blood is fake, and no one dies.
Join the call to arms if you dare, as a militant cell of eco-activists takes the audience hostage during a concert at Parliament House. The demand is simple: Australia is to immediately cease all carbon emissions and coal exports or they'll start executing their 1,700 hostages.
But they’re note the only ones to take the title literally. Between scenes of bloody action and banging 90s tunes, writer David Finnigan discusses the outrage the play’s title provoked from Andrew Bolt and his cabal of conservative bloggers. The original production was shut down in the ensuing shitstorm, leading Finnigan to eventually fold the scandal into the play.
Kill Climate Deniers is a controversial take on the climate change ‘debate’, in Australia. It’s a play written within a play, an action film inside a documentary, a satire inside a rave, and now it’s set to explode here in the Sunshine State.
