The End Of Us is in town for five shows this week.
If the world was ending in the next few hours, would you find the time to break up with your partner to go your separate ways or would you stick it out with them right till the very end despite how you are feeling?
In The End Of Us, on stage this week at BackDock Arts in Fortitude Valley, the marriage between Meredith and Archie has been breaking down and the break up itself is about to happen, just hours away from the democratically elected end of the world. What happened and what happens now? What do they say and where do they go?
Written and directed by Emma Fenton-Wells, a Brisbane export who works in London, The End Of Us debuted in February 2020 where it headlined a night of the Two Fest festival at Sir Ian McKellan’s local haunt, The Space.
In Australia, the stage performance has been produced by Rouge Theatre Co., the same company that brought us the sold-out season of I Often Find That I Am Naked in 2019 and continues to push forward traditional theatre in untraditional venues and female-led productions.
Starring Georgia Oulton and Calum Johnston as Meredith and Archie, The End Of Us, says Grace Elizabeth of Rouge Theatre Co., is ”topical, extremely witty and has a great beat.”
