In the face of climate change, environmental angst and apathy, what can a theatre company do? Put on an eco-logical comedy. There is nothing funny about global warming, however people are doing the strangest things as they work toward sustainability.
Sheila and Judy are caught in a neighbourhood upheaval over the ‘greening’ of suburbia. Harold and Sherry have embraced ‘disaster tourism’ – hoping to see the wonders of the world before they disappear. A new superhero, EnviroGuy appears to battle the forces of apathy. These are a few of the stops as you join The Last World Tour and take a theatrical journey from Big Bang Theory to Geo-Engineering in 75 musical minutes. The Last World Tour is mixture of story, sketch comedy and great songs.
The Last World Tour was written, workshopped and produced in Mahone Bay, NS in 2010. Natasha MacLellan was part of the team which got the play on it’s feet. A Short History Of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson and Heat by George Monbiot of The Guardian, were a big influence, among others.
The Last World Tour played to enthusiastic audiences during the month of August, 2010, in the church hall at Trinity United Church in Mahone Bay, NS.
