It’s Jackson’s first day as a drone pilot, protecting the sparse farmland of Kent, when he loses his entire unit over France. Aided by his irritated colleagues, Air Traffic Control, and an Eagle, he sets out on a search mission that could change the landscape forever. He should be a hero! But not everyone wants him to succeed.
Newbie is a fast-paced climate change comedy, that sets environmental challenges against cooperation and hope.

“Men argue. Nature acts.“ – Voltaire
With the future of our species at risk, this November the COP28 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
This summer’s IPCC report is a code red for humanity. The alarm bells are deafening, and the evidence is irrefutable. Extreme weather and climate disasters are increasing in frequency and intensity. That is why this year’s United Nations climate conference in Dubai is so important.
How should artists respond? What does a theatrical response look like? How can we make our voices heard? What contribution can we make? How can we influence change?
