Let’s Inherit The Earth
Profilteatern, Umea, and Scottish-Swedish tour
29th July- 13 th October 2018
This co-production between Profilteatern of Umea, Sweden and Dogstar was an urgent response to the impending disaster of climate change. Morna Pearson’s text traced the parallel journeys of a quintet of wealthy climate change deniers living in the tropical paradise of a Caribbean island, with a hapless couple from Moray conned by the a couple of ‘preppers’, with a brutal hippie family from Sweden. As Scotland floods, Sweden burns and the Caribbean beaches become infested with stinking seaweed, the characters true natures are revealed in extremis. The production was given a punk aesthetic with songs by Jonny Hardie, design by Ulla Karlson and a fine company of Scottish and Swedish actors.
