The Last Drop – a riveting drama by John Shand

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

Western civilization collapses during an economic upheaval. Pestilence, violence and war drive people away from the cities. Mary and Joe survive in the sand-dunes, desalinating sea water with a ramshackle still Joe has devised. They eat insects and any random crustaceans that they manage to scavenge. Their love is but a faded memory…like the many comforts of their previous life. Then, invaders arrive. Valentino is a shark of a trader. Esmeralda is his accomplice and whore. One ill fated night in their company tears Mary and Joe apart. Yet, Joe must still play a crude dentist to treat Mary’s unbearable toothache. Ultimately, hidden truths emerge that leave Mary at her wit’s end with only one way out.
