A drunken kiss, an icy plunge, and a reckless act of revenge.
In this world premiere production, playwright Kristen Palmer takes on the issues of global climate change through the lens of a family on the verge of a meltdown. Brilliant scientist Stevie returns home in the midst of a devastating personal crisis, only to find her family members frozen in isolation and her hometown losing its footing. Emergency actions are taken that threaten this tiny and fragile ecosystem.
Things You Can Do was presented as 2015 Construction Zone reading at ACT and a 2013 Cupcake Reading at Live Girls! under the title The Melting Point.
