AFTER All

Inspired by mediations on the future, After All wrestles with the inevitability of time passing. At the center of the piece are a Man (Joe Goode) who is visited by Santa Claus (Dwayne Calico); a pet goldfish (Beth Wilmurt) who has a three-month memory; and, a pastor (Matthias Bossi) who delivers a sermon for the end of the world.
