Play brings current climate change conversations to ‘Galilee’ at Azuka Theatre

Play brings current climate change conversations to ‘Galilee’ at Azuka Theatre

Galilee performances close this Sunday

Philadelphia’s Azuka Theatre is gearing up to conclude its 2022-2023 season with a show about climate change.

Galilee is set in a small town near the Great Barrier Reef. The story focuses on the significant impact of rising sea temperatures and the thriving mining industry on the local community along with a young marine biology student trying to rescue her family’s struggling business. Like many low-lying nations, the inhabitants of Galilee have to choose to either confront the challenges head-on, seek refuge elsewhere, or adapt to the ever-changing environment.

The play is written by Christine Evans and skillfully directed by Azuka’s Co-Artistic Director, Rebecca May Flowers. The show concludes on May 21, 2023 at the Proscenium Theatre at The Drake (302 S. Hicks Street) with a pay-what-you-decide model. Get tickets at
