How can we be agents of change? Maybe by imagining a future we can make it real. Maybe not. Anthropocene: The Human Era dives into the mind of Megan, a young woman dreaming about her future in the wake of the climate emergency. Time is stretched and warped as she sits in her bathroom staring down at a pregnancy test, in a multiple-choice adventure story inspired by Black Mirror’sBandersnatch and Gecko Theatre’s Time of your Life.
What does the future hold for us, our children and our planet?
