Set amidst a zombie apocalypse, The Last Days is about four people just trying to survive till the next day. When one of their own comes home with an infectious bite, he refuses to tell anyone. As his health deteriorates their social structure collapses around them and upon his passing, his zombie becomes an avatar for the remaining survivors to project their guilt and fears on as they descend into the darkest reaches of their own minds.
The Best of Spectravagasm, aka Spectravagasm V. Over the past 2 years, Spectravagasm has comedically kicked Portland theater in the face. In its fifth installment, this Sketch Comedy group has compiled its finest offerings into one gasm-packed hour of shenanigans.
