A meteor the size of LA is about to hit LA, ironically, and in London a couple of friends spend their last seven days watching the news, reinventing chess and rewriting the rules of some of the other games in their universe: generally getting things into perspective, at once paralysed and inspired by the 'overallness of it all'.
In his darkly hilarious and poignant play, Sebastian Michael imagines The End of the World not as a disaster movie, but as experienced by two young men from the comfort of their sofa.Getting ready, as best they can, to die together, the enormity of what's about to happen completely overwhelms them, but it also brings out in them a whole burst of creative energy, and so as the story to top all stories unfolds, they inadvertently become its co-authors, while in a dimension far beyond their imagination, their soul-mates-in-spirit are having something of an unexpected ball...This is the full-length video of the world premiere production of the play, recorded live at The Old Vic Tunnels, the now legendary underground arts and performance space beneath Waterloo Station in London, in January 2013.
