"Love in the Time of Climate Change" at DC Fringe

WHAT IS LOVE IN THE TIME OF CLIMATE CHANGE
"Love in the Time of Climate Change" is a play written by a young professional working in the solar energy field (Rozina Kanchwala) balancing the woes of dating in a cosmopolitan city, while working on climate change issues with a seemingly hopeless outcome. This play started as a creative outlet for Rozina to express her frustrations with dating, politics, and climate change, but ended up being a community wide project. With the support of her family, friends, and colleagues. "Love in the Time of Climate Change" was accepted into the Washington, DC Fringe Festival and made its debut in July 2019. After a successful run at the Fringe Festival, with 4 sold out shows, Rozina seeks to find other venues and audiences to continue to share the message. 

LOVE IN THE TIME OF CLIMATE CHANGE SYNOPSIS
“Love in the Time of Climate Change” follows the life of a young woman who lives in turbulent times trying to find love and a sense of stability. She deals with the struggles of modern dating while being plagued by climate depression and tries to find a sense of community through which she forms a friendship with a climate refugee, falls in love with an activist, but dates a climate denier. While the play is funny and takes a light-hearted approach through her journey, it reflects the pressures society places on cisgendered women and the serious issues facing the world, with a call to action for everyone present.
