Who cares if the beef is organic? The world is ending!
Three couples gather on the back deck of a very modest suburban home for a mid-summer barbecue where the hosts, Mike and Deb, struggle with feelings of inadequacy about their home decor, their clothes, their careers, their culinary skills, and pretty much everything else. Their guests don't help matters: Ash is a successful but annoying yuppy; his wife, Lulu, likes to get very drunk, very quickly. Win mistakes his obnoxious confidence for charm, and his new girlfriend, Glory, is just too young and beautiful to be tolerated. As the world literally falls apart during their terrible, little barbecue, the only way to measure success is by survival or extinction.
The audience favorite from Charlotte’s Off-Broadway’s recent "Page to Stage" series of readings at Camp North End, BARBECUE APOCALYPSE is receiving a full production at the Warehouse PAC. Audiences looking for a hilarious comedy as sharp and tangy as barbecued raccoon need look no further!
