We have an important New play About Climate Change ready to go...
Extreme Whether ("brave and pioneering", "laced with darkness and humor" Andrew Revkin, NYTimes) had a sold-out premiere at Theater for the New City in October. Each performance was followed by a talk back (Dr. James Hansen, Dr. Jennifer Francis, Dr. Dale Jamieson, Dr. Ana Baptista and many others). Audiences included students and professors from John Jay College, where there is a new sustainability minor, Hofstra, Columbia, LaGuardia Community College. Everyone, universally, from scholars to young people, to regular audience loves this play: its humor, its intensity, its beauty, the wonderful characters of Uncle, the old environmentalist who weaves with his words spells about nature, and Annie, a brilliant transsexual teen activist saving her beloved frogs, and the heated debates between the climate scientist and his colleague and lover and his twin sister, an energy industry publicist and her husband, a lobbyist. Andy Revkin described the play as about the American family in our current debate. Jim Hansen said "the love of nature" the play evokes is its most important part and the "documentaries are boring, but this play really moves people." Jennifer Francis says "it is just a most impressive play. It was wonderful as a reading. It is even more wonderful now."

Telling the Truth One Play at a Time
Our last decade of plays remain newsworthy: Prophecy, 2006-2010 (Berlin, London, New York) about the cost of our wars to veterans and civilians; Another Life, 2011-2013 (Kosovo, Gerald W. Lynch, Irondale, Theater for the New City, NYC; London) the only American play to tell the truth about the U.S. Torture program; and Extreme Whether, 2013-onward, our family drama about Climate Change which needs to be more widely seen. We work on minuscule budgets to deliver productions of the highest quality.
Theater Three Collaborative, founded in 1995, creates, develops and produces new poetic-language, character-driven plays on pressing social issues.
We surround our plays with Festivals of Conscience, talks and talk-backs by experts in the field the play addresses.
