Kill Climate Deniers

Date: 17 Feb 2018

Kill Climate Deniers centres on a militant cell of eco-activists that takes the audience hostage during a concert at Parliament House.

Led by charismatic spokeswoman Catch, they demand Australia immediately cease all carbon emissions and coal exports – or they’ll start executing their 1,700 captives.

But they’re not the only ones to take the title literally. Between scenes of bloody action and banging ’90s tunes, writer David Finnigan discusses the outrage the play’s title provoked from Andrew Bolt and his cabal of conservative bloggers.

In Steve Dow’s interview with Finnigan, the playwright opens up on being Andrew Bolt’s poster boy for the looming green-communist takeover.
