HI, MOM! MONOLOGUES FROM THE CHARACTERS OF CLIMATE CHANGE To Get Developmental Staged Reading

As part of a yearlong developmental series, Hi, Mom! brings multiple playwrights together to shed insight and humor to the massive topic of today's environmental crisis by creating a monologue-style play that features the untold, or unheard, stories of many of the characters who are affected. This project, conceived by Naked Light Productions founder Laura Delhauer, incorporates a range of voices and viewpoints: from the activist to the oil man to the sea turtle as it aspires to highlight the humanity in all of us. As Delhauer explains "I wanted to create a company for storytellers. People who want to start productive conversations by touching hearts, by making people laugh, by amplifying the lesser heard voices or perspectives within a given topic. I think the only way we're going to stand up against issues as massive as the climate crisis is by listening, and being willing to see things through the eyes of others and letting that inspire us to function as more compassionate and proactive inhabitants of this planet."

This project has been in development since last June, with one-night presentations throughout this developmental phase that each align near the calendar seasons, the final presentation of which is set for Spring 2019. Naked Light was formed out of a need to "re-establish the role of the artist right now", Delhauer explains, "I keep seeing people in the artist community deeply impacted, emotionally, by subjects like Climate Change, but then feeling at a loss when it comes to what we can actually do about it. I believe, however, that our storytellers are actually some of the best equipped people to make a difference right now."

The Hi, Mom! Playwrights include Reed Arnold, Laura Delhauer, Micah Delhauer, Jamie Roach, Sarah Schaefer, and Jason C. Stuart. Former and past Cast members include: Reed Arnold, Laura Delhauer, Micah Delhauer, Nino Gurgenidze, Ben Maters, Dace McNally, Michael Minto, Ilana Warner, and Meredith Watson. The Research Assistant is James Delhauer, with Co-Directing and Producing by Laura Delhauer and Jonathan Zautner.
