AFTER IT'S ALL OVER premiered in New York City at the Gene Frankel Theatre as part of 2009 Vignettes of the Apocalypse
The play, one of my few non-naturalistic pieces, concerns a nuclear family in a post nuclear world, where the United States has surrendered to an unnamed enemy that has every superiority possible. The son is gung-ho to tackle the invaders with his new found weapon - a sling shot that he has no idea how to use, but a six year old girl he has met might help - while his parents seem more concerned with their simple survival - or even worse, the frightening question of what they will do... if he wins.
