Until It’s Gone

Until It’s Gone is a new dark comic drama that explores what a dystopian world without women means for the men left behind.

In a future however many years from now where women are extinct, two men meet on a park bench. The younger has brought two Kia-Ora’s to share, but the older doesn’t want to know.

They’ve got a Government-issued pamphlet with bullet points to follow, but with step one ‘turn up’ proving a challenge, things don’t seem promising.

Co-presented with Traverse Theatre, in association with Stellar Quines.
