“Let’s go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over.”
A night of stand up curated by Tom Neenan and inspired by our collective ability to retreat to the Winchester with our tails between our legs. Tom Neenan is a BAFTA nominated writer and comedian. He is head writer of BBC Two’s leading satirical show The Mash Report and star of his own Radio 4 series The Hauntening.
This event is part of Extinction Rebellion’s (XR) Summerhall Residency, 25th July – 25th August 2019. A month of visual art, installation, film, theatre, spoken word, poetry, live art, performance, workshops, talks and more – all engaging with XR’s core three demands and questioning how we respond to the global climate and ecological emergency.
XR’s demands are as follows: that the government tells the truth on the climate and ecological emergency, that the government acts now to reduce biodiversity loss and commits to net zero carbon emissions by 2025, and that the government creates a Citizens Assembly to oversee the changes.
