‘Like the planet I’m trying to save I am screaming – and you want me to speak of hope?’
Amara meets Bridgette at a protest, one of them, ‘hippy, green, save-the-planet’ things. She’s just popped out to grab some milk and now she’s late – and there’s a flood coming.
Bridgette’s a committed activist. Amara’s about to finish her GCSEs. Their town’s been flooded. Again. But how’s getting arrested going to help anything? They can’t afford to do that.
BURNOUT was created with climate activists across the UK who feel frustrated by the climate movement. The show exposes the burnout experienced by activists from marginalised communities alongside the burnout of our planet.
BURNOUT is written by Nicole Acquah and devised by the company. It’s a call to action for audiences to think about privilege, activism and climate justice.
