Jody Gehrman's new play Wild Fire (working title) runs Ocober 18-27 in the Mendocino College Center Theatre. The play is part of the CVPA PHOENIX PROJECT, a college arts initiative confronting human-caused climate change.
Directed by Reid Edelman, the play is an emotional journey examining the impacts of climate change on our physical world and our society spanning three time periods (current, future and farther into the future). It is a disturbing look at the cataclysmic future which awaits us if we fail to adequately address our climate crisis. However, it is also an engaging personal story, following a group of interwoven characters and their descendants; it looks at sacred and artistic elements which define our humanity and make our survival as a species meaningful and worth fighting for.
