"I want you to imagine me in a crowd of people. It’s 2030 and the mean temperature this summer has been 40 degrees celsius. It’s midday. The sun is nuclear hot. There have been spontaneous outbreaks of fires round the country the closest to us in Epping forest, a monster conflagration which raged for 3 weeks"

A woman stands alone on stage

She has one hour to change our future

One hour to avert catastrophe

She’ll give everything she has

Addressing the climate emergency head on, Extinct includes testimony from environmental activists

Extinct opened at Stratford East in June 2021


“There’s not a single moment in the show’s 80-minute running length that lets you look away – the story is urgent, gripping and wonderfully crafted” ~ North West End

"As much an engrossingly strong play as it is a call for action... Possibly the most intensely gripping Ted Talk one may ever see" ~ A Younger Theatre

"April De Angelis's dystopic climate drama is a powerful, urgent polemic" ~ The Guardian

"Atmospheric production... innovative use of video and sound design" ~ WhatsOnStage
