Stanford Repertory Theater and Planet Earth Arts 2019 Summer Festival

Stanford Repertory Theater is proud to partner with Planet Earth Arts and the National Center for New Plays in presenting a festival dedicated to the Environment and Social Justice. The festival features three original works: Voices of the Earth: From Sophocles to Rachel Carson and beyond … (a compilation of voices on humans and the natural world); Polar Bears, Black Boys & Prairie-Fringed Orchids (a play in which well-meaning environmentalists confront the tragic realities of Black Lives Matter); and Anna Considers Mars (the poignant story of a young woman who dreams of being chosen for a one-way journey to Mars).

The summer festival also includes the first Planet Earth Arts Environmental Film Festival, with discussions and talkbacks among filmmakers, Stanford faculty, and special guests featured in the films. All events take place on the Stanford campus.
