An Incomplete List of All the Things I'm Going to Miss When the World is No Longer:
An Incomplete List of All the Things I'm Going to Miss When the World is No Longer: is an electro-synth pop musical at the end of the world. Following a global announcement of the exact time Earth, as we know it, will cease to exist, a community of young queer friends and lovers decide the only reasonable thing would be to gather together for one last rager. This 80-minute musical invites you into a glance at the LAST PARTY ON EARTH --INTERWEAVED THROUGH a retrospective of cherished and tragic memories-- to celebrate and mourn the delights and deceptions of the human experience.
“...WHEN THE WORLD IS NO LONGER:, HAS THE WINDEDNESS OF A POST-ROCK SONG, AND ITS CREATOR IS RECKONING WITH SOME SIMILARLY WEIGHTY SUBJECT MATTER — DEATH, LIFE AFTER DEATH, EXPERIMENTING WITH HALLUCINOGENIC DRUGS — THROUGH A MIX OF DANCE, SONG, AND DIALOGUE.” - MAX MARIN
— PHILADELPHIA WEEKLY
“AN INCOMPLETE LIST OF ALL THE THINGS I'M GOING TO MISS WHEN THE WORLD IS NO LONGER: is a script that I found engrossing and permeable. It's a play that I could visualize while reading and would be so excited to see what an artistic team and cast would create on stage. A play about death and the end of the world that truly subverts expectations. I laughed out loud, was moved emotionally and will continue to think about this beautiful work.” - Heather Meyer
