Royal Court, London The facts are sombre in Chris Rapleys compelling 75-minute talk on climate change, but his belief in human ingenuity knows no bounds Climate change play 2071 aims to make data dramatic Other theatres investigate the past: the Royal Court is taking on the task of examining the future. After Ten Billion , in which Stephen Emmott explored the catastrophic consequences of over-population, we now have this monologue by Chris Rapley, co-written with dramatist Duncan Macmillan , which looks at the outcome of mankinds dependence on fossil fuels that create greenhouse gases.
