The Catastrophe Club invites you 500 years into the future to examine the early 21st century just before the collapse of civilization as we know it.

They have crept out into public to meet in an illegal recreation room to peer into our past and consider what it meant to alive in 2019.

Produced by Christopher Domig, Janelle Garcia Domig and Sea Dog Theater

The cast features Sue Kim, Dan Kublick, Cassandra Nwokah, Rachel Towne, and Stewart Walker.

Audience members will enter the world of the play on the day of the show, when they will be emailed the location of the secret meeting point which is a short walk (2 minutes) from Bleecker & Lafayette.
