Motor-mouth Loves Suck-face: An Apocalyptic Musical



Shut up and listen. In exactly ten minutes and fifty-three seconds the world is going to end. But that’s not important right now. What’s important is how this all began, because if you can understand that, if by some miracle clarity wedges it’s sweet toe beyond the apathy of boot scooting zombies then maybe, just maybe there’s hope for us all in this knee deep existentialist sludge-pile we so loosely refer to as life. Translation?

Welcome to the party to end all parties on the last night of the world. Armageddon. Zombies and existential teenage passion. Where the only way to escape annihilation is through a cosmic wormhole that leads to another dimension. Then there’s Motor-mouth and Suck-face, two geeks desperate to lose their virginity before the planet implodes. With a pop-rock score featuring songs I’d Rather Be A Zombie, My Polar Bear, I Want To Taste Your Fish-paste, Heart Be A Radio and the show-stopping Suck My Armageddon, this is musical comedy about a planet on the edge complete with a Bollywood diversion. (How else do you distract a mob of mindless zombies right before the world is about to end)?

Join us for a cultish, heart-felt romp – dress up as a zombie or a geek to join in the fun –just don’t forget to pack your laughing gear and prepare to die laughing.
