Play Titled Kill Climate Deniers Opens In Oz Theater

“As a classic rock band take the stage in Parliament House’s main hall, 96 armed eco-terrorists storm the building and take the entire government hostage, threatening to execute everyone unless Australia ends global warming. Tonight,” the play’s website says. “Now, the embattled Environment Minister has no choice but to pick up a gun and stand up for her ideals, pushing back against the threat which has engulfed her country — one terrorist at a time.”
Ugh. Sounds horrible. The play was written by David Finnigan with original music by Reuben Ingall and opened Thursday in the Griffin Theatre in Sydney.
