Farm Arts Collective presents: DREAM ON THE FARM

Play #4 in a Decalogue of Climate Change Plays

The More Things Change

Tuesday August 8 to Sunday August 13, 2023

At 6:30 PM on Willow Wisp Organic Farm

An original theatre performance in a walk across the farm, with farm-fresh food to follow.

Damascus, PA—The More Things Change is the newest original work from Farm Arts Collective premiering AUGUST 8at 6:30 PM on Willow Wisp Organic Farm. Conceived and directed by Artistic Director Tannis Kowalchuk The More Things Change is play #4 in the ensemble’s 10-play climate change series called Dream on the Farm (New York Times story here) taking place from 2020 to 2030.

This year’s Dream on the Farm play is a promenade performance, inviting the audience to walk the 25 are solar powered Willow Wisp Organic Farm to experience the show.  The More Things Change is the story of a multi-generational farm family who is offered a large sum of money to sell their organic farmland to developers who want to turn the farm into a “bio-diversity” theme park called Eco-Land.

The offer pitches the family into a dramatic crisis and a riveting family drama unfolds as they decide what to do in the face of climate change and their own personal dreams—to sell or not to sell?

The More Things Change is created collectively and performed by the Farm Arts Collective ensemble.  It features original music, spectacle, and a poetry of performance that works in a unique harmony with the landscape and bucolic vistas of Willow Wisp Organic Farm, a 25-acre farm on the Delaware River. The audience is invited to taste farm-fresh food following the show as part of the performance experience.

The performance is supported by National Endowment for the Arts, Radio Drama Network, William E. Chatlos Foundation, Honesdale National Bank and Deep Roots individual donors.
