The smallest changes can lead to the biggest impact, and no one knows that better than Emma, a scientist studying climate change in Greenland. Still grappling with the unexpected death of her husband, she is invited to the nation’s capital to share her findings at a Senate hearing that could define her career and her cause. But if she can’t overcome her tumultuous inner struggle, her dedication and sacrifices may not be enough to make the difference in the world that she’s always wanted.

Developed at the 2016 Colorado New Play Summit.

Producing Partners:  Martin and Jo Ann Semple and Two Degrees is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award

This production is also supported by the members of the Women's Voices Fund
