There are strange cracks appearing in the land on the other side of the world, turning habitats into wastelands and creating a new wave of climate refugees.

But no one’s worrying about that here – where a mayoral candidate is promising more, more, more. It’s what the people want. Apart from Maru that is, who can’t breathe.

As we enter Coventry’s year of culture, the Belgrade Youth Theatre present Like There’s No Tomorrow – one of the first National Theatre Connections plays to be created by young people, originally devised by Belgrade’s Young Company in March 2020. With a new and different approach, informed and shaped by the turbulent direction our lives have taken since the play was written, it asks should we still care about the earth we live on?

Bringing together young talent from across Belgrade’s Youth Theatre and joining groups all over the country to stage the play as part of the NT Connections programme, Like There’s No Tomorrow gives voice to young people’s concerns about climate change at a time when the future has never looked more uncertain.

Contains two instances of strong language.

We are delighted to have partnered with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust for this online production of Like There’s No Tomorrow. In response to the three biggest threats that our planet has ever faced; the ecological crisis, the climate crisis and the human health crisis, the Trust have launched their Nature Recovery Fund which aims to create new nature reserves and bring wildlife back to Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull.

10% of all donations raised by Like There’s No Tomorrow bookers during the run will be gifted to Warwickshire Wildlife Trust‘s Nature Recovery Fund. Remaining donations will be retained by the Belgrade Theatre and reinvested in the work that we do, including our ongoing work with young people.
