About the Show
LaMama presents 'Jupiter' a new play set in a world where fossil fuels have ceased to exist.
'Jupiter' takes the form of a 200-year-long dialogue between Humanity and a man who made all fossil fuels disappear permanently from the Earth. Featuring original music and created in collaboration with energy experts, 'Jupiter' asks whether it is right or effective to impose radical change for the greater good.
"'Jupiter' is a well-thought-out, cutting-edge play…It is clear that they not only embody a worldview but also deliver it with extraordinary purpose and aplomb. Pickard’s script is powerful and concise...The play/performance progresses with such deference to the experience of the audience that the focused collaboration produces its intent boldly and with great detail…The deeply moving 'Jupiter' delivers its message in an insightful and powerful evening, and beyond."
