The Blazing World

When: April 11-15 2018

The Villain's Theatre re-imagines Margaret Cavendish's 1666 proto-science fiction epic, highlighting how our own world is blazing with the dire effects of climate change: "Peg is a scientist studying a dying species of fly which lives on a rapidly dissolving glacier in the Rocky Mountains. Unsure of how to make a difference, she embarks on a desperate journey which propels her into a strange new universe. Exploring the terror of being overwhelmed in a world ravaged by climate change, where our options seem to oscillate between panic and apathy, this new play melds contemporary issues with a science fiction epic inspired by Margaret Cavendish, one of the most unique female philosopher-poets in western history," the theatre company says.
