Convinced the world at large can’t be trusted to prioritize the well-being of adolescent girls in the event of a cataclysmic event (or just in general), a determined troupe of 8th grade ‘doomers’ are committed to preparing for survival in the post-collapse society they anticipate inheriting.
Josephine makes apocalypse preparedness videos and posts them to YouTube. Vic takes Jujitsu. Maureen encrypts her text messages and hordes matches (because lighters fail). Sarah stuffs her knapsack with extra socks, granola, water filtration tablets and Tolkien novels, because “you don’t know where you’re going to be… when it happens… you might not be at home.”
Part local history, part coming-of-age story, Polly and the Penthouse follows a young woman in her journey through the world of Vancouver's iconic Penhouse Nightclub. Full of fascinating true tidbits and encompassing a wide range of musical styles, this site-specific musical is in its early stages.
