A moving, funny and troubling monologue about acclaimed playwright Steve Waters' journey into a changing climate. Performed by the writer, In a Vulnerable Place takes us from the Broads of Norfolk to the Steppes of Mongolia to ask what is happening to the natural world and to the human heart.

In 2009, acclaimed playwright, author and teacher Steve Waters saw his climate change play, The Contingency Plan, produced to glowing reviews. "Finally, a good play about climate change," one reviewer commented. But what was the personal reaction to climate change that inspired him to write in the first place?

Six years later, he asks the question, "Has the world changed or have I changed?" in a moving, funny and troubling monologue about his journey into a changing climate. Performed by the writer, In a Vulnerable Place takes us from the Broads of Norfolk to the Steppes of Mongolia to ask what is happening to the natural world and to the human heart.

For Pivotal, Steve will also be on hand after the performance to take part in a open audience discussion about the climate, the art of playwriting, and the intersection of the two. Is the world changing? How do we fit into that change? Does our generation need to fundamentally re-think our relationship to nature?

"massive achievement... [Steve Waters has] made the most important issue of our times into engrossing theatre." Guardian review of The Contingency Plan.

"Finally, a good play about climate change." http://moreintelligentlife.co.uk on The Contingency Plan
