It’s the end of the world. Do you have a date?
As an undiscovered comet hurtles towards earth, one lone scientist takes it upon himself to preserve the human race. Hilarity ensues when the woman he has taken captive refuses to procreate, and the shelter he has built is damaged beyond repair. This darkly funny New England premiere by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb takes a look at our fascination with the end of the world and starting anew.
"Nachtrieb has a degree of control over his work that its happy-go-lucky spirit belies." – Variety
The performance runs approximately 90 minutes. There will not be an intermission.
The Black Box Theater is general admission seating.
