Synopsis

​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.

Development History

​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.

Production History

​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.
