WYA (Waterford Youth Arts) would like to invite you to see our, 25th annual Summer Theatre Project - 'We have 11 Years to save the planet, but we only have today to save ourselves' which is running in Garter Lane Arts Centre from the 21st - 24th of August at 8pm each evening, followed by a question and answer session with the cast and crew.
Directed by Grace Dyas / Deirdre Dwyer -"We have 11 Years to save the planet, but we only have today to save ourselves" is a dark comedy on
the very serious topics of Climate Change and Mental Health,
that concerns today's youth.
"It’s real. It's happening, it's an emergency; a crisis. The planet is under threat and the consequences of not acting are devastating. How can we can sing and dance when the world is burning up? The planet is under threat, a global crisis, but we don’t have know how or have the ability to do anything about it, we are young people, what can we do? And everyone around us seems to have their heads buried in the sand. Maybe we should just try to enjoy the summer, make theatre, make memories. Forget about it. But we can’t. Can we? We want to put on a good show, everyone loves the Summer Project. But some of us want to act, to take a stand, use this platform. The drama will unfold from the ensuing conflict."
Running on the 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th of August in Garter Lane Arts Centre.
