Synopsis
 
Hot Air is an environmental comedy set during an outdoor party on Dartmoor. The polite conversation quickly fades, as a heated debate breaks out about the origins of global warming, its likely impact on the local community and the rights and wrongs of various courses of action designed to mitigate it, including a proposed wind farm on the moor.

Instead of simply witnessing this debate, Hot Air invited audience members to join in. The play was followed by an interactive period of discussion led by the fictional character, Dominic, a journalist consulting the local community. A vote was taken at the end of the discussions to gauge how the community felt about the proposed wind farm.

The comments and results show a slight preference for the wind farm, but the purpose of the discussion was to explore climate change issues and provide a framework for raising awareness of the challenges climate change will present.

Hot Air was written by Mark Beeson.

MED Theatre, is a community theatre organisation based on Dartmoor.
