Toronto: Common Boots Theatre presents free show “Apocalypse Play” September 8-18

Thursday, August 11, 2022

Real-life mother/daughter feminist theatre makers Kate Lushington and Natasha Greenblatt return to beautiful Hillcrest Park to present their seriously funny, searingly personal tale about motherhood, legacy and the future… with a twist. Last year Natasha was grappling with whether or not to have a child in the face of climate change and pandemic instability… this year she’s seven and half months pregnant and the world has only gotten more terrifying!

How do we hold onto hope for our collective future when apocalyptic fears loom within our bodies? Apocalypse Play, or Bundle of Joy is a “funny, thoughtful, painful and engrossing” show about what we inherit and what we pass on, as the clock ticks towards climate catastrophe. Who will take care of the future? And will there be dancing?
