Intelligent, thought provoking, sometimes slow

See it if You are passionate about climate change, saving the world, suspicious of the wealthy and like the wonderful actor George Bartenieff

Don't see it if You don't like a somewhat extended drama with lots of intellectual goals and seriousness of intent Read more

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Ambitious, Well-intentioned

See it if you are concerned about our environment and find a family story incorporating major issues involving saving our planet worth your time.

Don't see it if you expect a major play dealing with our weather.Instead, it's a small but all-encompassing plea for enjoying our planet, not destroying it.

Edgy, Raunchy, Confusing, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if a more straight forward approach to climate change like Al Gore's " An Inconvenient Truth" is not entertaining enough for you.

Don't see it if earth's future mixed in with a few sidebars of dirty politics , sex ,vulgarity, and gender identification issues bore you Read more

Village Voice
March 7th, 2018

"Uneven but well-intentioned, 'Extreme Whether' is, at base, thematically interesting...Set not at a climate convention, but on a plot of remote family land, the drama feels removed - literally and figuratively...The actors seem to have been directed to perform big, with emphatic movements and shouting. Such heightened performativity works during climactic moments but is mostly at odds with the play's aspirations toward realism."
