Patrick Rehill Climate of Courage

Climate of Courage

Patrick Rehill Climate of Courage

World-renowned climate change activist Sam McGoriam returns home to Melbourne for his milestone 5,000th presentation. His latest slideshow Climate of Courage lays out clear science and simple solutions that will inspire you to build a greener future! Unless you’re not a Queensland swing-voter, then you probably don’t have the power to do anything. Except maybe bring along a Queensland swing-voter? Otherwise feel free to take advantage of the theatre's low lighting to just curl up in the foetal position, have a good cry and wait for the end of the world.

Climate of Courage is a solo character show about clinging onto your sanity while trying to prevent a global climate catastrophe. It's also funny, I promise.

Written and performed by Patrick Rehill (Completely Improvised Potter, Pat and Josh: Decent Human Beings)
Directed by Hayley Tantau (Cindy Salmon, Foxtel's The Slot, Polygamy, Polygayou)
