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.
