   "The Arts are the locale for a kind of guerilla warfare . . . they're subtle so the Establishment gambles that they won't lead to anything threatening.  
    But the Establishment often loses that gamble."

The Second Coming has never been so much fun!!!

        Join us as we take a subversive look at the lighter side of the Apocalypse in this new play by one of America's fastest emerging new playwrights.  END DAYS by Deborah Zoe Laufer offers a wry collision of icons as Jesus Christ, Stephen Hawking, and Elvis swirl in and out of the lives of what just might be the most dysfunctional family of Twenty-First Century America.  It's a sharp, inventive, and deliciously irreverent comedy with a serious message about blind faith, love, and family in today's world.

        Our production of END DAYS is graced by Buffalo starlet Wendy Hall as the frighteningly perky Jew-turned-Born-Again-Christian matriach opposite Philip Farugia as the depression-racked father who narrowly escaped when the World Trade Center came crashing down.  To complete this dysfunctional family unit, emerging young actress Eliza Vann plays their lugubrious goth-punk daughter and fresh-faced Michael Wachowiak as her Elvis-obsessed suitor.  John Kennedy* and Joshua Robinson complete the bizarre band as Jesus Christ and Stephen Hawking respectively.

        END DAYS is directed by Subversive Theatre's Associate Producer Michael Lodick* with Sound Design by our resident sound dude John Shotwell*, Set Design by Lauren Millman, Lighting Design by Emily Pedersen*, and Costume Design by Kaitlin Russo.

        Author Deborah Zoe Laufer is fast becoming one of America's most performed playwrights.  Over the last year alone, seven of her plays have enjoyed 20 renditions at renowned venues from Rochester's Geva Theatre to Cleveland Playhouse and even Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre.

        END DAYS runs October 23rd - November 15th with performances Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm.  All shows are at our regular performance venue, The Manny Fried Playhouse at 255 Great Arrow Avenue on the third floor of North Buffalo.  Tickets are $25 general admission or $20 for students, seniors, and Subversive Theatre Members except on Thursdays when admission is always pay-what-you-can.
