    Last: An Extinction Comedy

    Witness the world premiere of this new play that blends improvisation, comedy, and environmental activism as "a troupe of tired and really hungry comedians roams the crumbling remains of human civilization, performing sketches about extinction." Why is this actually a promising concept? Because it's a Vortex collab between the award-winning director Rudy Ramirez and that improv powerhouse Sarah Marie Curry, with Bonnie Cullumreturning to the stage after a 20-year hiatus! – among a cast of talented theatre stalwarts.
    March 29-April 27. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $15-35.
