Playing with Climate Science: Scenes from a playwright’s CIRCA/IMET Artist Residency

Susan McCully, the CIRCA/IMET Artist in Residence for 23-24, is a playwright, theatre-maker and Associate Professor at UMBC. Her award-winning plays about social justice and feminist queer aesthetics have been performed at universities; international fringe festivals; feminist and queer theatre festivals; and conferences both throughout the US and internationally.

Actors will read scenes and McCully will discuss her new play featuring the relationship between climate science and social justice. The work was developed through her year-long CIRCA residency at the Institute of Marine & Environmental Technology and is currently under development at World Builder Incubator which brings solution-focused fictional entertainment to mass markets.
