„Cry Me A River” is a solo about internal and external climate disasters. The central question is: What do my tears have in common with those of the glaciers? The answer is verbose and emotional. In an associative monolog, Anna Mendelssohn brings together a multitude of voices, opinions, discussions, and rhetoric on climate change, interweaving voices of politicians, scientists, surgeons, activists, poets, and deep ecologists with her own personal reflections. She cries. And intermittently dances on thin ice between internal and external worlds, between the personal and political.
