Written by ANDREW FARMER
Directed by ANDREW NEISLER
Music & Lyrics by NATE WEIDA

What adventure are you in for?
Epic stillness, inanimate objects, many actors. Weida’s affecting, oddball tunes match with Farmer and Neisler’s deliriously deadpan spin on what’s left behind when the world ends.

About the show:
Humans have been wiped out and all our crap’s been left behind. A sweeping combination of music, comedy, and wild physicality tells an epic tale of all the big and small stuff we make, and trash, and store, and use, and surround ourselves with everyday. Will the boats miss us? Will the spoons?
