ORACLE:- “Divine Revelation; Person or thing serving as an infallible guide or test.”
THE ORACLE is dedicated to the preservation of our planet, to all living organisms and the children of tomorrow.
Fiercely topical and highly entertaining, THE ORACLE explores the future of our fragile planet and reinforces the need for environmental awareness.
THE ORACLE, written by composer Terry Burgan (Cuckoos, Urban Guerillas) and playwright Alex Broun, (Pick Ups, Desire), is the ecological musical of our times.
“If a monster from outer space came to Earth and began to rampage across the planet, crushing an acre of tropical rainforest every second, spewing toxic poisons into the air and water and devouring species at the rate of 5 an hour, we would declare a global emergency and fight the invader. In trust, that assault is happening, but the monster is US. We need ways of seeing ourselves and the environmental struggle through new eyes. That’s why plays, books, songs – musicals – are so important. They left us out of the familiar images, to see and hear with new senses.” – Dr David Suzuki 1994
