Heather Woodbury's As The Globe Warms - Episodes 1&2
Austin, TX
Share this event:

Endangered frogs, whirling dervishes, desperate scientists, and Evangelicals gone wild--all the inhabitants of Vane Springs, Nevada-- live out the soap opera of everyday life through the extraordinary headlines of our times.

The VORTEX proudly presents the World Premiere of OBIE Award and Spalding Gray Award winner Heather Woodbury's   astonishing new one-woman, million-species comic epic that explores what it is like to survive in America today, on a planet edging toward climate crisis.

This new epic solo performance is presented in six evenings of theatre that can be enjoyed separately, but together form a complex, funny, and moving continuing saga.

As the Globe Warms follows Lorelei Ray, the home-schooled daughter of a Pentecostal preacher who finds herself mysteriously "speaking in the tongues" of endangered animals and sharing these possessions on-line with a growing following of Evangelical youth. When handsome herpetologist Reed Ferris arrives in her small town, determined to try to save the local "Butterscotch frog" from extinction, an unlikely friendship forms and this has far-reaching consequences for the people and creatures of Vane Springs, Nevada. In the mix are Tea Party zealots, closeted gay evangelicals, a working class family on the brink of extinction, and eyewitness reports from whales, polar bears, bees, bats and frogs.

Heather Woodbury is a theater artist known for her  "highly addictive theatre" (Austin Chronicle) -- sprawling works that combine the seductions of cable TV serials with the high-wire immediacy of live, solo storytelling.
