Waiting for Garbo
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The worlds largest landfill, an island of floating plastic the size of Texas and Greta Garbo! This theatrical vortex of recycled plays, Garbos Divine Woman and words from environmental prophets explores our devastating addiction to plastic consumerism. The landfill is closing and the choices are bad for the out of work garbage pickers: prostitution or drugs. Two options present themselves: a gold rush on the high seas recycling the Great Pacific garbage patch, or the unexpected opportunity a Garbo-loving filmmaker brings. This play is a prophecy, a prediction of the future. It's not sentimental, it's real.
