The shrill wail of the air raid sirens sounds off in the distance as you step out into the night. The distant rattle of machine gun fire keeps you company as you make your way down the rubble strewn streets. You savor the acrid scent of gunpowder as you check the show times up on the marquis.
You look over to the large clock on the corner building:
Its two minutes to midnight.
You walk in the entrance pay your admission and take your seat. You read the program and check your Geiger counter. Sit back and relax.
“If you’re going to tell people the truth, you better make them laugh; otherwise they’ll kill you”-George Bernard Shaw
EndTimes is an independent Theater/Film Production Company founded in New York City in 2006.
Since then, EndTimes has produced 7 Full-Length Productions, and over 100 short plays, involving the talents of almost 300 theater artists. The company has performed in the New York, San Francisco, and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, winning top honors for Best Production, Best Director, and Best Ensemble at the San Francisco Fringe Festival in 2008 for William Whitehurst’s “Knuckleball”, and again in 2009 for Mark Borkowski’s “The Godling”. EndTimes also won the Best Production award in 2010 for its presentation of Jamie King’s “TMZTV” at the Shortened Attention Span Festival. EndTimes has been widely featured in various publications, including, Time Out New York, The New York Times, The Huffington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, Broadwayworld.com, The New York Daily News, and The New York Post .
EndTimes focuses on work that is dark and satiric, with an underlying element of social commentary. Incorporating dance, music, vaudeville, and comedy, we produce high-energy, entertaining theater that is aimed at a wider audience than more traditional forms. Drawing for inspiration from sources as varied as the Marx Brothers, Alice Cooper, Robert Anton Wilson, Del Close, the Annoyance, and George Romero, EndTimes merges popular forms with the ancient tradition of live performance to create a theater experience that is appealing and accessible to modern audiences.
