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.
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.
Kill Climate Deniers is a stage play by David Finnigan and an album of original music by Reuben Ingall.
The ebook playscript is available on this website. The album is available right now through Clan Analogue.
Kill Climate Deniers is a multi-platform project across theatre, music and live performance.
The resulting script, Kill Climate Deniers, was nominated for the 2014 Max Afford National Playwrights Award.
The heated national response to the work when it was announced in 2014 encouraged the creators to make the work available more widely. David's stage play has now evolved into a radio play, an ebook, and an original album by producer Reuben Ingall.
