After previews at Ovalhouse and the Arts Council's Decibel showcase last year, the play will now run at Soho Theatre Downstairs before visiting Latitude Festival in Suffolk.
I Love You But We Only Have Fourteen Minutes To Save the Earth features a series of performances each fourteen minutes long.

The production explores subjects such as ecology, spirituality and politics with a "nice dose of humour and glamour". The cast features 'avant guardian angel' David Hoyle; Fancy Chance, the reigning 'alternative Miss World'; and 'eco worrier extroadinaire', Timerblina. Additionally, short films by Bette Bourne and Kate Pelling will be showcased.
