Ahead of this year’s United Nations climate change conference — COP 27 — the Old Vic will host an event exploring the climate emergency. One Voice: Whose Planet Are You On? runs at the Old Vic on 16 October.

Tinuke Craig curates the event to demonstrate the urgent climate action needed. April De Angelis, Fehinti Balogun, Sonali Bhattacharyya and Benjamin Scheuer write and star in their monologues, with further casting to be revealed. Annabel Bolton directs all the monologues, with a further three to be staged in 2023.

Whose Planet Are You On? is part of One Voice, a series of monologues commissioned by The Old Vic to look at issues of today through theatre.

The Old Vic is currently home to Eureka Day starring Helen Hunt, followed by Jack Thorne's A Christmas Carol.
