Directed by the theatre’s artistic director Brian Logan, the play is made in partnership with Westminster Kingsway College’s Lung Biology Group and looks at the consequences of pollution and what might be done about it. Running until November 11, Fog Everywhere is part of the theatre’s fortnight-long climate change season, with a variety of work addressing issues as diverse as bees, the oceans and attitudes towards reproduction in an overpopulated world.
