ANTE Up Productions Brings AND NOW, THE END to 2014 SummerWorks Festival, Beginning Today
ANTE Up Productions presents And Now, The End, a new Canadian musical playing at Theatre Passe Muraille as part of the 2014 Summerworks Festival, beginning today, August 7, and running to 17th.
Asteroid AXS-667 is headed for Earth. With the announcement of the coming apocalypse, the citizens of Roxton, a small Canadian town, struggle to come to terms with their imminent doom as society crumbles around them. Childhood friendships are tested, personal convictions compromised, and love becomes the ultimate sacrifice. The stillness is coming- what would you do with the time you have left?
