Flying Ace and the Storm of the Century, created in collaboration with scientists from Columbia University’s Earth Institute, is a one-act play for audiences of all ages inspired by Snoopy and Hurricane Sandy, exploring hope in the face of extreme climatic events.
Organizers tell Stark Insider the production is coming to the Bay Area from its home in New York.

Created in 2013 to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, Flying Ace is “a duet performance exploring how people negotiate extreme climatic events.”
