Words: Leo Doulton
Following fire, flood and virus, two survivors wander in a barren landscape. They come across the self-isolating, stockpiling Queen of Cans in her bunker, who invites them in to party. Can love blossom even as life on Earth perishes? And who or what is the Dark One of whom they are so terrified? Stripped to its essentials, with only an accordion for company, this comic opera turns out to be no laughing matter. Performed in costume, semi-staged.

Leo Doulton will interview himself about writing comedy/horror opera libretti… then there’ll be a Q&A for the creative team to ask the audience questions about the creative process!
