ABOUT THE ARTIST
“Love in the Time of Climate Change” is a play written by Rozina Kanchwala, a young professional working in the solar energy field balancing the woes of dating in a cosmopolitan city, while working on climate change issues, both with a seemingly hopeless outcome. This play started out as a creative outlet for Kanchwala to express her frustrations with dating, politics, and climate change. With the support of her family, friends, and colleagues. “Love in the Time of Climate Change” was accepted into the Washington, DC Fringe Festival and made its debut in July 2019. After a successful run at the Fringe Festival, with 4 sold-out shows, Kanchwala seeks to find other venues and audiences to continue to share the message of love, hope, and climate action. The semi-autobiographical piece was a way for Kanchwala to intersect her frustrations with a call to action while educating the audience and making climate issues accessible to the audience.
