Andy Smith and Lynsey O’Sullivan

We are the citizens! This is our assembly! We are the actors in this story!

What are we doing about the climate emergency? What are we not doing? What more could we be doing? What more should we be doing?

Be part of the story and join the debate with A CITIZENS’ ASSEMBLY, a new work by acclaimed theatre maker Andy Smith created in collaboration with applied arts practitioner Lynsey O’Sullivan. Part of a series of works called PLAYS FOR THE PEOPLE: plays written to be performed by the people in the room.
