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.

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.
