Introducing… Baked Alaska

Green suggestions from our Members Day in YorkRiding Lights Theatre Company is pleased to announce our new show for autumn 2015, BAKED ALASKA.

From the four corners of the earth come inter-connecting stories of human beings living with the wild, unpredictable effects of climate change…

Scientists, farmers, oil magnates, climate warriors, prophets, mothers, journalists and others just like you and me – we’re all in the mix and hungry for a recipe of hope in the struggle about power. Some will sound the warming bell, some blow hot and cold, while others make a pudding of the planet.

Through the richly entertaining world of BAKED ALASKA, the realities of climate change are served up with flair and clarity about the temperatures involved. Riding Lights are creating an inspiring show which is challenging but fun, urgent but hopeful.

Performances in your community

BAKED ALASKA is touring to churches across the UK from September 16th to November 22nd, serving up a recipe for hope ready for the 2015 United Nations Conference on Climate Change taking place in Paris this December.

The show is presented by a solidarity of organisations, including Christian Aid, Operation Noah and the Diocese of Lichfield, committed to raising a christian voice in the call to worldwide action.

If you would be interested in hosting this inspiring piece of theatre in your community then please contact Caitlin, our BAKED ALASKA tour organiser, at Riding Lights Theatre Company on 01904 655317 or email: caitlin@rltc.org

    From Wimbledon Green Churches, we extend a warm welcome Riding Lights and their ‘Baked Alaska’ show, playing in Wimbledon, SW London on Monday 5 October 2015.

    Folks, could you confirm which church here in SW19 you are playing that night? Is it St Mary’s Church Road, in the Village, overlooking the All-England Tennis Club? Or is it Holy Trinity CofE in Wimbledon Broadway?

    With thanks, Alban Thurston, Merton Power, a fledgling energy co-operative, serving the self-energising citizens of SW London

    • Hello Alban,

      We’re just putting the final tour schedule together at the moment, but the plan is for Baked Alaska to be performed at Holy Trinity Wimbledon on the 5th October. (There should be more info up on the website early July.)

      Thanks for your interest in the show and good luck with the co-op.
