Mock trial on climate change to be held in Red Bank



RED BANK — The Monmouth County Climate Coalition (MCCC) will present, “Mother Earth v. World’s People: A Mock Trial on Climate Change,” at 7 p.m. on Jan. 30 at the Marion Huber Theater, 21 Bridge Ave.

The 40-minute mock trial intends to explain different ideas about climate change and will ultimately ask the audience to serve as a jury and reach a verdict.

Climate change is also a theme in Two River’s upcoming production of “Hurricane Diane” by playwright Madeleine George.

George, along with Director of the Urban Coast Institute at Monmouth University Tony MacDonald and MCCC member Lynn Dash, will lead a discussion on how to spread word about climate change through different outlets.

The trial will be read by Two River Theater’s Metro Scholars, a group of high school juniors immersed in acting workshops and internships at the theater.
