Cataclysm! By SquidShow Theatre

THE END IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK. AND SO IS THE BEGINNING. Saturday, July 31; Sunday, August 1; Monday, August 2; and Tuesday, August 3. 7:00 p.m. at The Deep Creek Mine (seven miles outside of Telluride).

Cataclysm! tells the story of survivors who find each other after our nation suffers a complete environmental, governmental, and financial collapse. This unlikely group of pioneers must create a new society and decide what they want to bring with them from the past—and what should be left behind. Their tenuous first days, relationships, stories, memories, and selves then become the subject of future generations’ mythology.

As always, SquidShow Theatre’s plays are FREE and open to the public. Donations happliy accepted (a hat will be passed). Not suitable for children. Location: Deep Creek Mine is located seven miles West of Downtown Telluride, on Highway 145 at milemarker 75. From Telluride, drive straight down the hill seven miles, turn right on Deep Creek Road. Signs and attendants will direct you as to where to park. Please Carpool, or take the FREE SHUTTLE. Telluride express will leave from the CourtHouse at 6:30 p.m.

**SquidShow is a theatre company that strives to create exciting, challenging, original events. We believe in utilizing all things artistic (music, dance, art, and comedy) in our theatrical extravaganzas. Collaboration, at the center of our process, creates new work and re-imagines existing texts. SquidShow Theatre wants to surprise audiences with unconventional theatrics and to live in the moment with truthful human connection.
