‘The End Of All Flesh’ play reading at the Rochester Opera House

Rochester Opera House
31 Wakefield St.
Rochester, NH 03867
United States

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.
