Three Shows about climate change being staged at Edinburgh Festival 2023

Ted Hill: Tries And Fails To Fix Climate Change | Assembly George Square | until 27 Aug
You can always trust the Edinburgh Fringe to throw up lots of work related to topical events, and this year is no exception, of course. I’ve found quite a few shows that are either completely focused on the topic of climate change or have it as one of a number of themes. I’ve picked three (though it was tough – they all look great) and this – a comedy pick – is the first. Expect silliness and graphs. Click here for info and tickets.

Chrissie And The Skiddle Witch | Greenside @ Riddles Court | 14-19 Aug
Next up is a musical, and it’s aimed at older children aged eight and over, which is a great thing, honestly, because so often it’s hard to find stuff that will appeal to the pre-teen age group. Anyway, this is about thirteen year old Chrissie, a young climate change campaigner surrounded by unconcerned family; fortunately she meets a strange old lady who turns out to be an unexpected ally.

Alone | Assembly George Square Studios | 4-28 Aug
“In the deep reaches of space, two scientists have made a potentially monumental discovery, but will they be able to make it count? Will their faith in science or an almighty allow them to hold the ship together long enough to bring this seed of life back to a dying planet?” An award winning sci-fi drama about feminism, climate change and David Bowie. And like many good things, it’s from New Zealand. Click here for info and tickets.
