Comedy sketch show An Unsustainable Mess on this week at the ADC
This climate change-themed performance tackles everything from reusable period products to sentient wind turbines. Creator and director Luke Hoskisson says: “I have always played with the idea of using my comedy writing for a positive impact and this show addresses a topic that really hits home for me; climate change has me worrying 24/7.
“Despite all your best efforts, no matter how many things you put in the green bin, sometimes you end up asking yourself, ‘It’s all ending anyway, what’s the point?!’ And so I think it’s important that we make sure we still smile, and we still laugh - that’s why we’ve created the show.”
Assistant writer and director Ariel Hebditch adds: “We have thought carefully throughout the whole production process as to how we can make our show as sustainable as possible. We are using recycled props and costumes whenever we can, which includes getting creative with some cardboard here and there.
“This consciousness has made the project so rewarding as we are actively reducing our environmental impact as well as providing commentary on the climate crisis.”
