An Explosive Comedy by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb
Directed by Joe Gfaller

Is the apocalypse the ultimate aphrodisiac? Jules, a grad student, entices Jo, a sexy co-ed, through a Craigslist ad, to his subterranean lab. But, why are cupboards filled with a lifetime supply of toilet paper, tampons and bourbon? Why is this strange woman, Barbara pulling levers in the corner? You can bet something is going to blow.

Featuring Shelly McCook, Eve Krueger & Topher Payne

Rated R – this play contains a whole lot of 4-letter words.

New York Times critic Ben Brantley – “darkly funny dialogue and an appealing way of approaching big themes sideways.”

Time Out New York’s Adam Feldman – “essentially a dark-themed, light-toned allegory of survival and change.”
