Perhaps The World Ends Here

Abe Burrows Theater, NYU Tisch

Feb 29 - Mar 9, 2024

Perhaps the World Ends Here is a sci-fi epic that blends video game culture and Choctaw cosmology in the style of Theatre of the Ridiculous.

Frankie Brown is a young Choctaw woman with big dreams and an even bigger destiny. Hopelessly devoted to becoming a professional video gamer and e-sports star despite some serious ineptitude, she pawns her personal belongings to pay rent and further her dreams. After unwittingly losing the key to the universe, she must undertake a journey of epic proportions accompanied by her queer best friend, her granddad, and a fearsome hopaiyai to prevent a great cataclysm.
