Climate change tackled as production of Baked Alaska comes to Lichfield Cathedral

A comical slice of Baked Alaska will be served up at Lichfield Cathedral later this month.

Riding Lights Theatre Company will present the show on October 23.

The production tackles the issue of the unpredictable effects of climate change and Chris Gray, from the Cathedral, says he hopes the play will help raise awareness before a United Nations Conference in Paris in December.

“We’re delighted that the Riding Lights Theatre Company will be bringing Baked Alaska to Lichfield as part of their national tour,” he said. “The hope is that the show will bring the important issue of climate change to the forefront of people’s minds, and teach us ways in which we can look after our planet.

“Riding Lights has a reputation for producing incredibly funny shows and after seeing the trailer, I’m sure this one will be no different.”

Ann Burden, from Christian Aid, says the show’s comedy also has a serious message.

“This year is a crucial one, ahead of the Paris summit in December,” she said. “Climate change hits the poorest the hardest.

“We’d like to encourage everyone to get involved, raise concerns with local MPs and be part of the answer.”

Tickets are £12 and can be booked online.
