The End of All Flesh is an absurdist, post-Apocalyptic fable penned by two time Tony Award winning author Greg Kotis (and partly inspired by the grandeur of his own Covid-Beard) set on a remote mountain somewhere in America’s distant future. “Ma” and “Pa” survived the last days of The End Times and have somehow managed to scrape together a hunter-gatherer existence over the years. But their now grown son “Boy” and his fiancé “Girl” have their own ideas about the future of this last family on Earth – and of Humanity. This play with music explores environmental collapse, patriarchy, gender norms, broad stereotypes, generation gaps, and more.

Greg Kotis is a two time Tony Award winning author of many plays and musicals including Urinetown (Book/Lyrics), I Am Nobody, Give the People What They Want, Michael von Siebenburg Melts Through the Floorboards, Yeast Nation (Book/Lyrics), The Truth About Santa, Pig Farm, Eat the Taste, and Jobey and Katherine. Future projects include ZM, an original musical about teenaged fast-food workers trying to survive a zombie plague. Greg is a co-founder (along with his wife Ayun Halliday) of Theater of the Apes, and is a member of the Neo-Futurists, the Cardiff Giant Theater Company, ASCAP, and the Dramatists Guild. He grew up in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and now lives in New York City.
