The Next Storm is a dark and humorous look at the impact that the climate crisis has had on our community. Set in the not-so-distant-future, our story follows an ensemble of characters as they face the struggle between apathy, anger, and action. Who’s gets to decide the course forward and what are we willing to sacrifice? What happens when students and bureaucrats, parents and developers, idealists and realist come head to head over the best course toward climate resiliency?

The Next Storm is a community-based play by Civic Ensemble, Cornell Performing & Media Arts - PMA, and playwright Thomas Dunn. Directed by Godfrey L. Simmons Jr. and produced by Sara Warner. The play will be performed by Ithaca community members and members of the Cornell University and Ithaca College communities.
