Synopsis
 
Richard Bean’s new black comedy dares to question whether the science is settled.

The study of climate science is the cool degree at the university where Dr Diane Cassell is a lead academic in Earth Sciences. At odds with the orthodoxy over man-made climate change, she finds herself increasingly vilified and is forced to ask if the issue is political as well as personal. Could the belief in anthropogenic global warming be the most attractive religion of the 21st century?

    "I’m a scientist. I don’t ‘believe’ in anything."
The Heretic was directed by Jeremy Herrin, Deputy Artistic Director of the Royal Court. The production ran from 10 February - 19 March 2011.
