Greenland, is a new play about uncertainty, confusion and the future of everything, written by Moira Buffini, Matt Charman, Penelope Skinner and Jack Thorne.
Greenland combines the factual and the theatrical as several separate but connected narratives collide to form a provocative response to the most urgent questions of our time.
Seeking to understand a subject of great complexity, the National Theatre asked the four playwrights to collaborate on a new piece of documentary theatre. The team spent six months interviewing key individuals from the worlds of science, politics, business and philosophy in an effort to understand our changing relationship with the planet.
NT associate directors Bijan Sheibani and Ben Power were the director and dramaturg respectively.
Greenland ran from 1 February - 2 April 2011.
