|MTC presents THE HERETIC by Richard Bean|
‘an absolute corker, funny, provocative and touching’ - The Telegraph
‘a riotous comedy’ - The Independent
Although far from a being a climate change sceptic, Dr Diane Cassell is nevertheless a serious scientist who likes the facts to speak for themselves. When her data contradict a key doctrine of global warming theory, her university puts pressure on her to conform. Yet she can do no other except speak her truth, even after her heresies hit the front pages and her world really heats up.
Temperatures rising. In his fleet-footed black comedy, British playwright Richard Bean gambols without a care through the climate change minefield. Noni Hazlehurst returns to MTC to play the fearless scientist in the Australian premiere production directed by Matt Scholten.
