Climate change at the heart of new Polka Theatre stage show
Children are the future, and the Polka Theatre is encouraging them to speak out about climate change and the world they will inherit.
Co-produced by the Polka and Tonic Theatre, this show, designed for ages nine to 13 brings environmental science and global politics to life.
Created by Simon Daw, Joel Horwood and Lucy Kerbel, The Planet and Stuff takes audiences on an interactive whistle-stop tour around the planet, covering everything from global inequality to recycling all navigated by two actors and children from Polka’s Young Voices Panel.
Kerbel, says: "Children are brilliant at asking difficult questions about why the world is how it is. So we deployed a crack team of Wimbledon’s most inquisitive 9 to 13 year olds to interview climate change scientists, activists, campaigners and politicians. The show we've made off the back of this examines the change that children - and their difficult questions - can bring about."
