A Play for the Living in a Time of Extinction
Author(s): Miranda Rose Hall
Company: Headlong/Katie Mitchell/Barbican
“The difference between death and extinction is this: death is to cease to exist. Extinction is to extinguish. I think of death as individual. Extinction is collective.”
Naomi is part of a touring theatre company and they have made a play especially for you—those who are living through extinction—except the actors haven’t shown up yet. We don’t know why, and maybe they will, but in the meantime, Naomi has a plan.
Miranda Hall’s darkly funny and uplifting play explores what it means to be human in an era of man-made extinction.
