Bijan Sheibani’s Greenland at Lyttelton Theatre from 25 January 2011

Greenland will be played at Lyttelton Theatre from 25 January 2011 until 02 April 2011, which is directed by Bijan Sheibani.

What on earth is happening to our planet?

Who knows what and what can or should be done about it?

“We are as gods and we have to get good at it.” Stewart Brand

The questions we all have about the environment and the future are exhilaratingly intricate. Knowing what and who to trust is an increasingly bewildering challenge. Only a few things are certain: every living thing is related to every other living thing; our actions have consequences; change is constant and inevitable.

Seeking to understand a subject of great complexity, the National Theatre has asked four of the most distinct and exciting playwrights in British theatre to collaborate on a new piece of documentary theatre.

This team has spent six months interviewing key individuals from the worlds of science, politics, business and philosophy in an effort to understand our changing relationship with the planet.

Greenland combines the factual and the theatrical as several separate but connected narratives collide to form a provocative response to the most urgent questions of our time.

Cast includes Michael Gould , Isabella Laughland and Tunji Lucas.
