Black Sun / Blood Moon

Two intertwining stories – 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 and set in Wagga Wagga.

Black Sun/Blood Moon follows Maddy, a ten year-old climate champion, and Katie, the underachieving assistant of a climate-denying politician, as they set out to save the planet. When Paul unwittingly inspires his 10-year old daughter Maddy to take part in a school climate strike, their lives are turned upside down irrevocably.

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 fulfil a fantastical quest from the future.
