After the End

After the End

by Dennis Kelly

I think the biggest threat isn't from what people do to you, it's from what you do to yourself. They were all in the pub when the explosion happened. Louise wakes up to find herself trapped with Mark, who has saved her life. Mark is always prepared for the worst and has everything he thinks they will need to survive; tinned chilli, Dungeons and Dragons and a knife - now all they need to do is to wait until it's safe to go outside. Can they survive the attack? Can they survive each other? Dennis Kelly burst onto the scene with his brilliantly twisted debut "Debris" at Theatre 503 in 2003. Since then he has had productions of his work throughout Europe, as well as at the BAC, Traverse, Arcola and the National Theatre, and most recently "Osama The Hero" at Hampstead Theatre (developed by Paines Plough in their Wild Lunch season, 2004). "After the End" receives its world premiere at The Traverse Theatre on 5th August 2005 and also plays at The Bush Theatre, London.
