Tom has the task of doing eliminations for a Big Development Project. While carrying out his work he encounters Mariah, who seems to be from a timeless place. She raises questions about what he is doing and he begins to question himself. At the Big Development Meeting his colleagues Brickfielder and Hermattan wonder about the state of Tom’s mental health.

A valuable, thought provoking play which both captivates and inspires. A useful inclusion into the school programme which engenders creative thinking about climate change.

Liz Wallace, Assistant Advisory Officer, Western Education and Library Board.
