The End of All Flesh is a rollicking post-apocalyptic fable unfolding on a remote mountain top sometime in America's distant future. Having made it through the End Times, Ma and Pa fight to keep themselves and their son, Boy, alive, by hunting, gathering, and maintaining a healthy distrust of strangers. But Boy's near grown now, and his new friend Girl is putting some mighty funny ideas in his head about familial hierarchies and the Patriarchy. Expect plenty of picking (and some grim grinning) in a concert reading of a new dark comedy that explores environmental collapse, gender norms, generation gaps, survivalist practices, and the creative potential of a pandemic beard...in song!

Q & A with artists after all readings.


Artists Include:


Greg Kotis (as PA), Ayun Halliday (as MA), Sammy Pignalosa (as BOY) and Bitter Pill's Billy Butler (Upright Bass), Tomer Oz (Guitar), and Michael McKay (Banjo). Bios included at the end of release.
