Words for hope are just words. Words are spells. Your spelling is terrible. Drink some water.

Drink. Know the water is rising. The fuels these men use, what fuels these men. It makes the seas rise. The men do not believe in climate change. You cannot own a climate. Change is not the same as progress. The sea creeps closer by 3.2 millimeters every year. It’s a glacial pace.

Dear fellow artists and concerned citizens,

I have been preparing for this all my life. I just didn’t know it.

After all, I have produced and directed plays written by Havel in response to the Communist regime, plays by Ionesco in response to fascism, plays by inmates at Terezin during the Holocaust. I know what protest looks like, through the eyes of a playwright. I have channeled it. Yet somehow I didn’t ever expect to be on the front lines.

The time has come.
