TOO CLOSE -- A Play by Luigi Laraia at HB Studio, New York City September 13, 14, 15, 2018

LakeArts Foundation

The play, TOO CLOSE is a parable about climate change and its impact on two unsuspecting individuals trapped in an elevator in a modern-day high rise.  At its simplest level, it is a microcosm of a world in which depletion of resources leads to the inhumanity of man against man, and nothing in the play prepares you for its shocking outcome.

TOO CLOSE demonstrates the power of theatre to inspire, activate and make change in the world around us.

Presented at the HB Studios, the evening will also feature leading environmentalists, scientists, and climate change activists who will discuss the global impact of climate change as it begins to affect our daily lives and ultimately the relationships within our community.
