Kill Climate Deniers

What happens when the unstoppable force of climate change meets the immovable object of politics?

An action movie wrapped in a TED talk.

David Finnigan’s award-winning play is a ‘gleefully anarchic’ (TimeOut Sydney) look at the state of the climate ‘debate.’

As a classic rock band take the stage in Parliament House’s main hall, 96 armed eco-terrorists storm the building and take the entire government hostage, threatening to execute everyone unless Australia ends global warming. Tonight.

Now, the embattled Environment Minister has no choice but to pick up a gun and stand up for her ideals, pushing back against the threat which has engulfed her country – one terrorist at a time.

Kill Climate Deniers is a stage play by David Finnigan and an album of original music by Reuben Ingall. The playscript was awarded the 2017 Griffin Playwrights Award and nominated for Best New Play in the Sydney Theatre Awards.
