The Final Hours Hour

Written and performed by Ben Volchok

WINNER - HONG KONG TOUR READY AWARD - ADELAIDE FRINGE 2020

THE WORLD IS OVER... BUT THE SHOW MUST GO ON

Curl yourselves up with a nice warm mug of tea. If you don't have tea, just a mug of hot water. If you don't have heat, just a mug of water. If you don't have water, just a mug. If you don't have a mug, just your hopes and dreams will do. If you don't have those... Anyway, here's a song.

absolutely stunning ... marvelous and powerful ★★★★★
The Barefoot Review

The world has ended, and one lone soul surviving in a bunker broadcasts a radio show to anyone who might be listening across the very dead air.

The Final Hours Hour is a solo comedy play about loneliness, our dying planet, and the things we do to counteract them both. Also: onions.

Bleak and hopeful, dark and silly, a cry for help and a declaration of acceptance.
