100 Watt Productions – 12

“What happens when you’re told there’s only 12 years and it’s the 11th hour?”

12: an urgent love story between generations – and towards the planet we share. 

12 is not blame, nor is it despair. A unique collision of numbers & truth, outrage & humor, and resilience & frailty, 12 is a theatrical invitation led by youth to stop, listen, and question what it means to take action together at the 11th hour.
