It's The End Of The World As We Know It!

1hr. 30min.


"As the end of the world is set in stone, at least according to the Mayan calendar, it became an interesting theme for a short play festival. But I didn't want to limit the series to plays about hellfire or brimstone," said Scott C.Sickles, Artistic Director of the WorkShop Theater Company, whose, Main Stage Season included Eddie Antar's The Navigator, a New York Times Critics' Pick that has received two Drama Desk Award nominations. "Instead, I asked playwrights to consider cataclysms great and small. We have six plays that offer a wide array of interpretations regarding what constitutes an apocalypse. To one person it can be the loss of a loved one, to another it's the loss of a favorite TV show." The plays, all penned by WorkShop Theater Company playwrights, feature the talent of seventeen actors and 6 noteworthy directors: All My Problems by Laurie Graff (bestselling novel, You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs), directed by Fritz Brekeller (All My Children, As the World Turns); Nero, Seneca, Agrippina, and Apples by Walter Brandes (Best Actor nomination, Midtown International Theatre Festival), directed by Eddie Antar (Playwright, The Navigator); Save the Veal by Michael Lazan (Synagoguery), directed by David Gautschy (Synagoguery, co-writer pilot, 30 Nervous Breakdowns - Oxygen); Unfamiliar Faces by Glenn Alterman (God in Bed, An Actor's Guide - Making It In New York City), directed by Keith Greer (One Life to Live - two Daytime Emmy Awards, five nominations, three Director's Guild of America Awards); Unintelligent Life by John McKinney (Fly Season), directed by Kelly Johnston (Alley, GeVa, Arizona Shakespeare Festival) and Winter Retreat by Abigail Somma (Beneath the Hush, A Whisper), directed by Ryan Lee (Bethesda, Layover).
