The Guthrie Theater presents PRIME Productions’

Two Degrees

by TIRA PALMQUIST
directed by SHELLI PLACE
Dowling Studio

Overview

When paleoclimatologist Emma Phelps heads to Washington, D.C. — which some consider a hostile place for scientists — the stakes are higher than ever. She arrives on a mission to challenge some troubling shifts in environmental policy but finds herself at an intersection of the personal and political, which raises difficult questions around sex, power and doing things for profit versus public good. As she fights for change and searches for answers, Emma realizes she must thaw from her own anguish before she can save the planet and herself.

As one of the newest professional equity theaters in the Twin Cities, PRIME Productions seeks to explore, illuminate and support women over 50 and their stories through the creative voice of performance.
