No Years Eve – play about New Year’s Eve (and the world ending on it)

play about New year's eve


Christmas is over, and everyone is looking forward to the New Year, until the news breaks that there wasn’t going to be one. A jilted daughter, a nuclear physicist, a flower shop employee, a wayward priest and a thief all join Mr. and Mrs. Drummond for their final moments on earth. Emotions run high, secrets are confessed and love blooms in the face of annihilation.   What will they do when the time comes? And how will they pass the time until then in this play about New Years Eve?
