The End of All Flesh is an absurdist, post-apocalyptic fable penned by two -time Tony™ Award winning author Greg Kotis (and partly inspired by the grandeur of his own Covid-Beard) set on a remote mountain somewhere in America's distant future. "Ma" and "Pa" survived the last days of The End Times and have somehow managed to scrape together a hunter-gatherer existence over the years. But their now grown son "Boy" and his fiancé "Girl" have their own ideas about the future of this last family on Earth - and of Humanity. This play with music - presented at the Ring in a concert reading / workshop form - explores environmental collapse, patriarchy, gender norms, broad stereotypes, generation gaps, and more.
