Supporting Theatre to Inspire Climate Action - Eva O'Connor & Hildegard Ryan

Supporting Theatre to Inspire Climate Action - Eva O'Connor & Hildegard Ryan

By Ceara Carney

In episode 51 I chatted to artists Eva O'Connor and Hildegard Ryan about using the world of theatre to spark discussion and inspire change. Their theatre company, Sunday's Child, has a play called Afloat, streaming all this month (August 2021) as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I'd advise you to support it and hopefully this discussion will inspire you to make more art, or bring more art into your life!

You can follow Sunday's Child Theatre on Twitter @SundaysCTheatre, Facebook or keep up to date with Eva on Instagram @evaclaireoconnor.
