THE BLAZ­ING WORLD The Vil­lain’s The­atre re-imag­ines Mar­garet Cavendish’s 1666 proto-science fic­tion epic, high­light­ing how our own world is blaz­ing with the dire ef­fects of cli­mate change: “Peg is a sci­en­tist study­ing a dy­ing species of fly which lives on a rapidly dis­solv­ing glacier in the Rocky Moun­tains. Un­sure of how to make a dif­fer­ence, she em­barks on a des­per­ate jour­ney which pro­pels her into a strange new uni­verse. Ex­plor­ing the ter­ror of be­ing over­whelmed in a world rav­aged by cli­mate change, where our op­tions seem to os­cil­late be­tween panic and ap­a­thy, this new play melds con­tem­po­rary is­sues with a science fic­tion epic in­spired by Mar­garet Cavendish,” the the­atre com­pany says. Nep­tune Stu­dio The­atre, 1593 Ar­gyle Street, To Apr 18
