An apocalyptic comedy by Sebastian Michael.
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.
In his darkly hilarious and poignant new comedy, 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 living room 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.
