Funded 2018-2019 Last Days on Krypton was a one-person comedy show created and performed by Mav Adecer, directed and managed by Linh Lu, presented as part of the 2019 Edmonton Fringe Theatre Festival. The show explored the climate crisis, and the collective and very personal anxiety it produces, through children’s cartoons and other pop culture figures. The show was a community effort to create, with Mav testing out the show at friends’ houses, community centers and open mic nights for months before the Fringe. The work paid off. The production was a resounding success, bringing a no-name comedian from the “lonely task of crafting jokes within a swirling vortex of racism” to a near full house and a hold-over at the Grindstone. Joy and laughter are critical to surviving climate anxiety and the crisis itself, and Last Days on Krypton delivered.
