THE STORY: Post-apocalyptic wilderness was never funnier. Follow the adventures of Zetta Stone, a traveling performer, and her companion Dog (a young man undergoing a voluntary species demotion) as they wander through the former northeastern United States. Zetta, Dog and their little troupe are on their way to a gig in China, assuming they can find it...and survive the journey. A theatrical, darkly comic variation on the classic doomsday genre, with five original songs.
“Peppered with astonishing and exhilarating eruptions of storytelling and wondrous plays within the play.” —San Francisco Chronicle.

“Liz Duffy Adams has a few tricks that put her a notch above your average Brechtswept wasteland: A genuinely crystalline ear for rough, poetic dialogue; a handful of simple, honest themes - possibilities for kindness in a savage world, guilt as a luxury and a form of selfishness - in lieu of sprawling world-building...” —New York Magazine.

“This is a play that feels both contemporary and timeless, and I imagine will take its well-deserved place in the canon.” —New York Theatre Review.
