The Theatre School at DePaul University will present the world premiere of The Death of Gaia Divine, by Jacob C. Shuler, and directed by John Jenkins, as the featured production in the 2012 New Playwrights Series. The Death of Gaia Divine opens Friday, May 4, and runs through Sunday, May 13, at the Greenhouse Theater Center.
In a post-apocalyptic reality, a has-been drag queen God is ready to write the end of her life's story - but it would mean the end of the world. Will Benji and Tallulah compel their deity Gaia Divine to give them time to start their new life together, or will she pull the plug? A dark and inspired tale of loss and love, Shuler's new play infuses poetry and kisses with heartbreak and devastation.
