Don't be put off by the fact that this is a play. Really, truly, don't be. I was, but the premise was irresistible, so I read it.
It's *excellent*. From the throwaway horror of the apocalypse as seen on a trip to a coffee shop to the completely believable but almost dysfunctional relationship between the characters, it's a play I would *love* to see performed. Not to mention the metaphysical ending which I found both startling and thought-provoking.
I cannot recommend this play highly enough.
