NPRF24: You Are Cordially Invited to the End of the World!

JUL 21, 12PM

M has always had a complicated relationship with their parents. But when Greg gets a terminal diagnosis, their small family feels the pressure of time running out. Greg wants to expand his world, as he commits the rest of his life to fighting climate change, while his wife Viv wants nothing more than to keep Greg confined to their home. In this theatrical spectacle, M uses meta-theatricality and the joy of dance and theatre to explore themes of grief, dying, and our connection to the Earth.
