On the quotation, at 14:58, not sure who the source is about no significant art on climate change "the Heretic" opens Friday next week at the Royal Court.

 

Last year Mike Bartlett's "Earthquakes in London" had Charles Spencer for one writing ecstatically (5 August)

 

"the theatrical equivalent of a thrilling roller coaster ride. It swoops and twists, rushes and soars, and provides a great shot of adrenalin-fuelled excitement. With a running time of more than three hours there are, as on a big-dipper, moments when you wish the bloody thing would stop, and at the end exhilaration gives way to a slight feeling of anti-climax.

 

But the sheer energy and ambition of the piece are irresistible, while Rupert Goold directs a brilliantly inventive, unashamedly flashy production that adds greatly to the excitement"
