The Wet Desert

The Wet Desert is a new play in development by playwright and poet George Gunn.

It received a rehearsed reading at an Environmental Research Institute (ERI) conference in Caithness on October 27th, 2022.

The play explores the impact of climate change on communities, the loss of a way of life, a disconnection with the past, and a future tarred by the pursuit of oil.

The reading was directed by Mathew Zajac of Dogstar Theatre Company, and supported by ERI and Lythe Arts Centre.

It was an absolute pleasure to work as an actor with a wonderful team on a timely and thought-provoking play.
