Felicity Ward set to make UK Theatre debut

Stand up comedian Felicity Ward is making her UK theatre debut and starring in the European premiere of David Finnigan’s play Kill Climate Deniers.

Kill Climate Deniers premiered in Sydney in 2018, and sees Australian environment minister Gwen Malkin’s plan to curb climate change interrupted by eco-terrorists at Parliament House.

Ward said: “It’s the coolest play I’ve ever read and quite frankly what is not to love about the words: a self-aware post-modern comedy AND action play about climate change, politics, and media hysteria.”

Finnigan, who won the Griffin Playwriting Award for the piece, said: “This play is saying: I’m scared, turn the volume all the way up, panic euphoria, hold hands tightly, let’s go.”

Further casting set to be announced.

Kill Climate Deniers will run at the Pleasance Theatre from 4th to 28th June.

Why We Protest

Protest. It’s one of the first things we do. That cry all newborns make when they’re born? That’s them protesting being pulled from the lovely warm womb and out into this cruel harsh world. In fairness, I’d be livid too; I hear it’s nice in there. We’re born protesting and I think it’s one of the things that makes us human.

The Guide: December

AS IF the year is nearly over. If I were to give the year marks out of ten, I would be on the receiving end of an angry phone call from the year’s mother because the year had come home from school crying, and I would tell the year’s mother that she can’t shout me into a giving the year a better grade, because I’m a good teacher actually but there’s only so much you can do when your child is hellbent on being this much of an asshole. Does that make sense?
