“A full ensemble of finely nuanced performances” – Rob Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle
“5 STARS – A strong outing” – Sam Hurwitt,
Tom has fled to the basement to escape the end of the world. On the first floor, Vivian makes the mistake of saying what all the women in the office were already thinking. Randy’s smoking dope on 2, Farrah’s waterboarding Yuri on 7 and the toilet explodes on 4.
In spite of looming coyotes and apocalyptic billboards, everyone does their best to get through another day. Life is short, after all – whether or not the world’s actually ending.
This world premiere comedy by up and coming playwright Rachel Bonds explores the relationships we take most for granted – those with whom we work every day – and asks us how well we know the people we share a break room – and maybe even a lifetime – with.
Run time: Approximately 1 hour 45 minutes
