‘Has the world changed or have I changed?’
Returning to the Bush after his prophetic diptych of plays The Contingency Plan, playwright Steve Waters takes to the stage for a one-man show that tells the story of a very personal journey into the reality of climate change.
From the near-to to the far-flung, Waters has spoken with people in the Norfolk Broads and in Mongolia. He meets reed-cutters and camel-herders, twitchers and nomads; he meets the man who saved village and visits in prison a man who saved a river. While what he finds is often troubling, there is humour and hope that emerges from a world where there’s ‘so much left to fight for’.

curious directive, double Fringe First Winners (Your Last Breath & Pioneer), present a first look at their new show Solo.
In a cold garage on the outskirts of a small town on the East coast of the USA, the “Off The Grid” podcasters are piecing together the story of Richard Steiner, who disappeared during a solo attempt to sail around the world in 1990.
Using an aural approach to storytelling, Solo drops into the lives of Richard Steiner’s three daughters 25 years after his disappearance.
As the estranged three sisters begin to follow each other’s lives again, strange connections begin to appear between them. The podcasters shine a light on one of the most compelling and controversial new scientific theories as to how life is possible; the nautical, wave-like world of Quantum Biology.
