After the End by Dennis Kelly
Louise wakes up to find herself in an underground nuclear fallout shelter belonging to her colleague Mark, who has rescued her from the devastation caused by a suitcase bomb. Luckily, Mark has stocked food, Dungeons and Dragons and a knife. Now they just have to wait.
After The End is an urgent play about human behaviour when it is forced into extreme measures and the consequences within the quest for power and ownership. This claustrophobic ride confronts the tensions and paranoia which continue to exist within Western culture and forces us to question how far we would go to survive.
This is an amateur production.
