NEXT – DRAMA SCRIPT ABOUT A KILLER VIRUS
Life could not be any simpler as a college student… Until a killer virus starts devouring every person around you, day-by-day, with the high possibility that you may be next on the agenda. The grim reaper pays a small college town a visit in this play, in the form of an unknown illness whose modus operandi is “who’s next?” The human condition is isolated and explored when an eclectic group sticks together to try to survive and as the virus continues to strike with the boldness of one seeking vengeance, nature unhinges itself – revealing its true colours. Truly, some hues are more than the human eye could ever see…
The question for the living is: how will they serve the dead? A drama script about friendship, fear and survival.
