A twisted tale of two hapless characters who dare to question. Suspended in a rotting dystopian landscape, forgotten by the world, these two are comforted by blissful ignorance, turning a blind eye to the impending Armageddon. Rising from the detritus comes the voracious, clever and manipulative ‘worm’ set to divide the slavish trust of our heroic duo. This witty, insightful and poignant play will seduce you into a collapsing world where you will bear witness to the final showdown between truth and delusion…to be or not to be?

Unique Selling Point

This is as much a play about life as it is about death, because one is meaningless without the other. Within the writing is a love of Shakespearean tomfoolery, a shudder at the late night sleepless fog in which you're suddenly caught imagining the moment of your death, a flinch of the nervous feeling when your peering into a black hole, a murmuring back burner of feeling overwhelmed by the weight of inevitable loss and a sparkle of the need to express vaulting gratitude (to whom or what, we are not sure) at the exquisiteness of actually living.
