Baked Alaska is coming to Lichfield Cathedral

Thursday September 24 2015

Riding Lights Theatre Company will be paying a visit to Lichfield Cathedral on Friday 23rd October, to serve up a sharp and deliciously comic slice of ‘Baked Alaska’.

In the ‘seriously funny’ style for which Riding Lights is well known, ‘Baked Alaska’ presents the reality of climate change like you’ve never heard it before. The show, which fizzes with music and wit, brings interconnecting stories of the wild and unpredictable effects of climate change from the four corners of the earth.

‘Baked Alaska’ is presented in partnership with Christian Aid, Operation Noah and the Diocese of Lichfield. The aim of the show is to raise a compassionate voice in the run up to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris this December.

Chris Gray, Events Manager for the Cathedral says: “We’re delighted that the Riding Lights Theatre Company will be bringing ‘Baked Alaska’ to Lichfield as part of their national tour. The hope is that the show will bring the important issue of climate change to the forefront of people’s minds, and teach us ways in which we can look after our planet. Riding Lights has a reputation for producing incredibly funny shows, and after seeing the trailer, I’m sure this one will be no different!”

Ann Burden of Christian Aid added: “This year is a crucial one, ahead of the Paris summit in December. Climate change hits the poorest the hardest. We’d like to encourage everyone to get involved, raise concerns with local MPs and be part of the answer.
