Description

Quick catch-up: it’s 2026, and we've got four years left to save the world. Half a degree out, and millions of lives are at risk. The temperatures are rising, and so are the people – but not enough has changed. Also, there's only one polar bear left alive, and he’s written us a letter. We're going to save him. Will you help? A carbon-neutral comedy, powered by bike and solar power, about how to still have hope. Samuel French New Play Award winner, and Sunday Times Playwriting Award winner, 2019.

Pigfoot Theatre have got wonderfully creative to create the world of the show; with almost no scenery they decorate the stage with solar lights and make seagulls from litterpickers, train tannoy systems from tin cans and a boat from a piece of tarpaulin. There’s wonderful live music, plenty of alarming science facts about our ailing planet, and a brilliant moment when the audience are encouraged to wave banners and join in with a song to represent a large-scale climate change protest.

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 54 days ago

Climate crisis is unsurprisingly a big talking point of this year's Fringe, and this show by Pigfoot Theatre is one of a number which is tackling it straight on – in this case, both thematically and through the very mode of its delivery. ...

The Skinny (3/5 stars) 54 days ago

If 11.30 on a Sunday morning seems unrealistically early for Fringe audiences, perhaps a wake-up call to save the planet is enough to shake us from our slumber. This carbon-neutral musical comedy powered by bike and solar power is uplifting and fun, but doesn’t quite provide the jolt needed in...

Theatre Weekly (5/5 stars) 63 days ago

Powerful without being mawkish, How to Save a Rock is a hilarious and touching examination of the importance of protest and determination which feels important enough that as many people as possible should see it.
