Everyone knows that a bad break up can feel like the end of the world. But what if that’s what really happened? Blockbuster films destroy our civilization in increasingly inventive ways every summer. But what if there were a more intimate apocalypse, free from flesh eating zombies and digital destruction? What if the end of a relationship really meant the end of life as we knew it?

Thomas is a neurotic physicist trying to come to terms with accidentally ending civilization. Karen is a former office temp struggling to find her place in the new reality. ‘Of People and Not Things’ presents two interrelated monologues with subjective viewpoints asking the audience to decide for itself where objective truth lies.
