For the rare few who are blissfully unaware of humanities’ impending doom, as a result of climate change, the super writing committee: Moira Buffini, Matt Charman, Penelope Skinner and Jack Thorne have weaved together a gruelling two hour reminder; this is Greenland. A mesh of plot arcs showcase various views surrounding the issue, but for the most part these are very hit and miss, despite the fleeting embellishment of the NT’s impressive visceral effects. Its biggest saving grace, ironically, is how it managed to miss being as bad as it could have been. The painfully shocking statistics that plague the stage are not preached to the audience, who will still leave Lyttelton theatre feeling like the accused in a game of whodunnit.

 

The production runs until 2nd April 2011.

Tickets start from £12
