A new story exploring the power of every person to find their voice and save the world.

Two intertwining storylines – one magical, the other all too real – bring two unlikely heroes to the stage in a new work inspired by the Fridays for Future student-led protests of 2019.

Black Sun Blood Moon follows Maddy, a ten-year-old climate champion, and Katie, an underachieving assistant of a climate-denying politician, as they set out to save the planet. Maddy’s journey will put her at increasing risk as she takes her message to the powers that be, while Katie will find herself on the back of eagles and dolphins as she attempts to fulfill a fantastical quest from the future.
