Ecopocalypse is a dystopian play in which corporations and the wealthy continue the pursuit of profit at the expense of the environment.
A Theatre Makers project called the People’s Pop-Up Climate Justice Theatre premiered Ecopocalypse and another play called Animal Factory Farm with several San Francisco performances as part of the global Rise for Climate events during September 2018.
The first four performances of Ecopocalypse had the following cast:
- Julia(n) Butterfly Abbey….Ben Perlman
- Rajendra Shiva….David-Henry Bennett
- Barron Pruitt….Nadeem Anjum
- Ivanka Koch….Khadijah “Katie” Ford Garvin
- Air Vendor….Iryna Lymar
- Protestors….Matt, Alexander Milbert, Stardust
- Counter-Protestors….The Audience!
The People’s Pop-Up Climate Justice Theatre was created by Theatre Makers. Theatre Makers is a project of the Ritual Art Troupe, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
