The Accidental Activist
A stand-up comedian meets a climate activist and walks into a theatre
A quick-witted comedy show, The Accidental Activist doesn’t pull any punches – but provides a consistent thread of hope and resilience for anyone worried, angry or eager to do more about the climate crisis we’ve been thrown into.
Join Diane on this hilarious and provocative journey of feeling the fear and finding the hope in the midst of this mess. You’ll be laughing, crying and perhaps grabbing a placard on the way out!
