About the Show

This new cli-fi (climate fiction) is a fierce exposé of politically motivated censorship and a study of a family divided by money, power, and science.

Ambitious, Confusing, Long, Thought-provoking, Melodramatic

See it if you like fine performances or a strong environmental message, even when the material performed gets a little melodramatic.

Don't see it if you are an environmental polluter or an apologist for pollution (unless you’re seeking a conversion). Read more

Earnest but terrible writing

See it if you’re charmed by mouthy child prodigy-type characters

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

Critic Reviews (1)

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."
