This is a staged reading of END DAYS by Deborah Zoe Laufer.

This cast is great and brings great color and fun to the proceedings. You will definitely laugh at the right things, and if Dan Folino has his way, at the very wrong things. But you can’t stop yourself. 

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 is the last showing. Check it out!

Produced by Faye Sholiton

Directed by Fred Sternfeld

Sixteen-year-old Rachel Stein is having a bad year. Her father hasn’t changed out of his pajamas since 9/11. Her mother has begun a close, personal relationship with Jesus. Her new neighbor, a 16-year-old Elvis impersonator, has fallen for her, hard. And the Apocalypse is coming Wednesday. Her only hope is that Stephen Hawking and Jesus will save them all.

Deborah Zoe Laufer is winner of the Helen Merrill Playwriting Award, the Lilly Award and an ACTA Steinberg citation.
