"There's only one thing on this earth that scares me."

A rolling world premiere with Boston's Fresh Ink Theatre

 

Maggie survived the end of the world, but it hasn't really ended, has it? Stuck in an abandoned building with nearly unlimited supplies, a broken radio, and a book of spells, she bides her time and waits for the monsters to leave. But when her daughter reappears, Maggie can't celebrate because something is not quite right. The two women square off with both their lives hanging in the balance, and all that keeps them separate is a razor-thin chalk circle, hastily drawn by Maggie on the floor. The world premiere of ensemble member Walt McGough's intense sci-fi fable digs deep into issues of motherhood, responsibility and possession of all kinds.
