Having been a Climate Change Activist since late 2002, Alicia Liley proposed to SOUL’s Board at the 2009 AGM that SOUL Theatre Inc. produce a production, educating society and the politicians about the incredible seriousness of the Climate Change Crisis – before it is way too late!
Everyone agreed, so as Artistic Director, Alicia searched for a single Playwright for SOUL to commission on this play tackling the Climate Change Crisis
She obtained the performing rights to The Australian Premiere of The Contingency Plan by UK playwright, Steve Waters. The Contingency Plan.
The Contingency Plan is composed of two full length plays, On the Beach and Resilience.
To assist with SOUL’s purpose of this Climate Change message, Alicia had previously curated various other art forms in addition to this production.
These creative events of music, poetry, photography, comedy, poetry and Climate Science speakers are an addition to the combination of Short Plays, with all creative endeavours aligning with the theme of Climate Change.
This has taken shape as Climamania: Festival of Short Plays and Music.
