To the 7th Degree

As temperatures continue to rise and the United States continues to guzzle gas and burn more coal, To the 7th Degree explores the absurdity of this nation’s current policy (or lack thereof) on global warming. Set in New Orleans, Louisiana, To the 7th Degree invites the audience to fall in love with New Orleans, its culture, and its humanity—while simultaneously questioning New Orleans’ continued existence due to the impending crisis. To the 7th Degree invites the audience to laugh at, cry over, believe in, and question the reality of global warming. At a time when the nation’s largest impending crisis receives inadequate planning and attention, To the 7th Degree challenges the audience to think critically about our collective future—beginning with one of this nation’s most historic cities: New Orleans.
