THE KIDS MIGHT DIE (a tale told by an idiot)

The kids of Little Stars Youth Theatre are excited to bring you their production of Macbeth. But when an emergency broadcast announces the incoming end of the world, the young cast evacuates, leaving only their director, Jill, behind. The show must go on…right?

This comedic solo piece explores the paradox of live performance in a seemingly-doomed world. As Jill attempts to save the show, it devolves into an anxiety spiral on death and identity, featuring an epic guitar solo and Heely’s.
