TWO MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT

WE ARE BACK BABY!
After delaying its world premiere production in response to rising concerns over COVID-19, The Assembly Theatre will now present Two Minutes to Midnight by award-winning Toronto playwright, Michael Ross Albert (Tough Jews, Dora Award nomination - Outstanding New Play) in April 2022. Produced by the Assembly Theatre in association with One Four One Collective and The Spadina Avenue Gang, the highly anticipated new comedy will be presented from April 7-24 in Parkdale’s beloved home for independent theatre.
Jack and Tracy really need a vacation, but everything at their all-inclusive tropical getaway has been a disappointment. It’s rained the entire trip, their social media influence hasn’t translated to real revenue yet, and an inbound nuclear missile might be about to annihilate them and everyone nearby. With the world-- and their relationship-- on the brink of collapse, the bickering couple stares down oblivion together, confronting the illusions that kept them together, and finding hope for their future in the chaos of imminent destruction.
