At the end of civilization, when everything is running down, people will do anything they can to find a connection with another person, plant or animal. Set in an underground bunker below an inhospitable world, Alice and Cliff try to fulfill each other’s needs where each is one another’s last hope, all while attempting to sustain themselves with cans of Clean, when a stranger named Preacher is brought in to their circle and disrupts their functional dysfunction. Carly Weckstein does a great job creating the heat and post apocalyptic clausterphobia of this show, while Bruce Lemon and Bethany Esfandiari offer two sides of the opportunistic coin. The force of the show comes from Joanna Bateman’s muscular tenderness that transforms her internal moral conflict into madness and escape into the unknown. John Tyler McClain’s script, while poetic and visionary, lacks the focus I was hoping we would see by the end. The show is altogether entertaining and original. Kudos!
