Welcome to Center Square USA: where prosperity comes in giant supermarket form, even as the town dries up around it. For young Jake, comic book collector and all-purpose observer, the arrival of the Big Green Super Mart spells death of a certain way of life. But there will soon come a more immediate threat in the form of a killer plague. Does his town– or humanity– stand a chance? The answer lies somewhere in Montreal with a mysterious and seductive super-scientist.
Come visit a post-apocalyptic theater for rats by rats and hear their favorite story celebrating the events that led to a world free from human tyranny: an indie-pop musical performed by nine pet people playing more than sixty-five characters.
The Pestilence is Coming! A Super Fun New Musical about How You Will Probably Die!
