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.

Banal, Excruciating, Fluffy, Thought-provoking, Insipid

See it if your into conspiracies, blackmailing and scientific banter about global warming. good staging, decent directing.

Don't see it if you like good acting with a good story. Writing was awful, plot ,story and acting were terrible. Worst show this yr, worse then timestandss

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

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."
