Blue Hour Theater is performance art educating the public on Climate Change. Our group will be the first of its kind for Seattle. The mission is simple: save the planet by displaying solutions. Think you can’t do anything about this crisis? Our troupe will not only entertain you with stories, but show the world that much can be done to correct the damages. If being an actor and an activist is what drives you, then come on out and get involved. If the project succeeds then it will become a yearly event.

Brief Synopsis
 by Tira Palmquist
Directed by Tiffany Smith

Emma Phelps is a paleoclimatologist, focusing on ice in Greenland. In drilling and studying ice core samples, she sees first hand the symptoms of our changing planet, which makes the need to act all the more crucial and urgent. In addition to her growing sense of urgency for the planet, Emma, as a recent widow, experiences grief that compounds itself with each passing month. Now she’s been asked to Washington D.C. to testify in a Senate committee regarding climate change legislation, and in this intersection of science and politics, of politics and the personal, the finds more than just a little is breaking up under the strain of change.
