This is a play about global climate collapse and the real threat of near-term extinction for our species and perhaps all of Earth's creatures. Dr. James Light, an expert on evolution and biology, has evolved his university lecture into a clown show in order to make the information understandable and to ease the emotional pain. Cashiered from his teaching position because of his message, he's tried to make the message more palatable through use of comedy. He reminds us that we all understand that we will die someday. He asks for us to envision a kinder and more compassionate world as we descend into Planet Hospice.
