What on earth is happening to our planet?

Who knows what and what can or should be done about it?

"We are as gods and we have to get good at it." Stewart Brand

The questions we all have about the environment and the future are exhilaratingly intricate. Knowing what and who to trust is an increasingly bewildering challenge. Only a few things are certain: every living thing is related to every other living thing; our actions have consequences; change is constant and inevitable.

Seeking to understand a subject of great complexity, the National Theatre has asked four of the most distinct and exciting playwrights in British theatre to collaborate on a new piece of documentary theatre.

This team has spent six months interviewing key individuals from the worlds of science, politics, business and philosophy in an effort to understand our changing relationship with the planet.

Greenland combines the factual and the theatrical as several separate but connected narratives collide to form a provocative response to the most urgent questions of our time.

The Lyttelton - named after Oliver Lyttelton, Viscount Chandos, whose parents were among the earliest effective campaigners for the National Theatre and who was himself its first chairman - is a proscenium theatre, conventional in its basic shape though not in the excellence of its sightlines and acoustics.

There are no eye-blocking pillars, circle rails, or other familiar hazards and you can see and hear almost equally well from each of its 890 seats. Unlike most traditional theatres, the Lyttelton has an adjustable proscenium. You can make it into an open-end stage; add a forestage; or create an orchestra pit for up to 20 musicians. No seat is further away, here, from the actor's point of command than the distance from the front row of the dress circle in many older, larger theatres.
