Striking for A Future
Striking for a Future is a play by William Bross and Rev. Cheryl Frank concerning climate change – to be performed during a worship service in place of the sermon. It is based on the recent Climate Strike March in New York City and the reaction of a family watching the march from the father’s office window. The father is not certain that climate change is a real problem, but his wife and two daughters are determined to make him understand. It would be ideal if all cast members were high school students, but adults can perform the roles of the father and mother. The play is 20 – 25 minutes long. It can be shortened by eliminating the first scene. If possible, the play should be followed by a time of discussion after the worship service.
