Earth. Humanity. 200,000 years in the making.

A new pop musical telling the 200,000‑year love story between Earth and Humanity. From first sparks to today’s abusive relationship via infidelities of astronomical proportions, can Humanity make up for all the pain they’ve caused Earth? With a high-energy pop score and razor-sharp lyrics, THIS IS A LOVE STORY shines a fresh light on our relationship with the planet.

This unique event marks a significant moment in the creative development of THIS IS A LOVE STORY. Our REP STUDIOS live stream performance, scheduled during COP26 and celebrating Dundee Rep’s new Climate Beacon status, will be the first opportunity for audiences to experience the show in a concert setting - performed by two actors with a live on-stage band and continuous creative captioning. The presentation of this work continues Dundee Rep’s commitment to develop and platform the most exciting and innovative new musical theatre writing.

Climate Beacons for COP26 is a Scotland-wide collaborative project between climate change or environmental organisations and arts, heritage or cultural organisations to stimulate long-term public engagement in the lead-up to and following COP26.  Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre are thrilled to be part of this new initiative together with V&A Dundee, The James Hutton Institute and Dundee Museum of Transport as one of the seven Climate Beacons for the Tayside area.  Building on Dundee's reputation as a city of design, the Tayside Beacon will use design-led-thinking as a means to create and deliver innovative forms of public engagement focused on the climate crisis, finding sustainable ways for Tayside communities to take action.  New productions like This is a Love Story with environmental themes are a key part of the picture, providing imaginative ways to stimulate debate, discussion and change.
