“ReGeneration: The Tucson Story” by Jana Segal-Stormont is about a diverse group of teens who overlook their cultural differences and bring their communities together to save Tucson as climate change progresses. The virtual play reading is being put on by a diverse group of young people inspired to share sustainability solutions. This free premiere event, including a panel discussion with young cast members and the writer/director, will be presented Friday, February 26 at 6:30 p.m. on Youtube live. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2Q_cd4g5dJqSxawcVZSL9A
In Tucson’s not-so-distant future where climate change takes a turn for the worst, where even native Sonoran plants can’t stand the desert heat, a blackout causes a disruption in the already diminished water and food supply. It’s up to the youth to find a way to escape their scorching hot fate. Can Rogelio, a barrio teen grappling with family issues, alongside of Ha:san, a Tohono O’odham teen struggling to balance traditional ways with city life, and Alex, a runaway non-binary science whiz, bring their communities together to fix this mess before it’s too late?
