Plummeting insect numbers. A sixth mass extinction. Thinning of ice sheets. Sea level rise. The Amazon is burning. Yet we keep going; drinking and partying like never before. In the casino we roll the dice as the planet collapses. A unique game based experience tackling eco-anxiety and humanitys inaction. 

“It’s like you’re being hit over and over again or like having eight alarm clocks in your bedroom. How is a human being meant to process this information?” – Caroline Hickman, University of Bath

Originally commissioned by Upstart Theatre as part of DARE Festival 2019.  Supported by Shoreditch Town Hall and Ovalhouse.
