BETWEEN HEVAN & EARTHA
Written by Francesca Amendolia & Sharia Benn
In this new play, inspired by and created for the Climate Solutions / StateImpact PA project, six very different people find themselves thrown together on a stormy night in Harrisburg—the evening isn’t going to plan, but maybe that’s why things finally get real.
The conversation is only just starting—and you’re invited to take part.
