Director’s Note

Apocalypse is the catalyst for a myriad dichotomies: destruction and creation, hope and delusion, id and superego, beauty and desolation. The simplicity of capturing two characters who swim in their own dichotomies–Twinkie in a blend of the bare bones of survival and the wonder of freedom, and Sno-Ball in hope and denial–is what gives Waiting for the World to End its unique tone and flavor. Meandering through the mire of murky and mutual uncertainty, the polar opposites find common ground as they explore the basic principles of what it means to endure and, even more importantly, what it means to live.

Elise C. Hanson is very glad indeed to be doing yet another production with the talented and creative team that makes up The Hive Theatre Company. Most recently, she was a part of their production of The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh, and is now enjoying seeing an original work by her friend, Jared Greathouse, come to life. She would like to thank Jared and Tiffany for including her in this unique process. Here’s to the end of the world!
