The Accidental Activist

A stand-up comedian meets a climate activist and walks into a theatre.

Diane O’Connor didn’t grow up expecting to be an activist, it just sort of happened, one minute she was holding a pint in the pub the next it was a placard at a protest.

A quick-witted comedy show about a woman trying to find her place in the midst of this mess. The Accidental Activist doesn’t pull any punches but provides a consistent thread of hope and resilience for anyone worried, angry or eager to do more about the climate crisis we’ve been thrown into.

Join Diane on this hilarious and provocative journey of feeling the fear and finding the hope. You’ll be laughing, crying and perhaps grabbing a placard on the way out.
