Four Women of the Apocalypse - Free

This one-woman comedy show takes you to the frustrated post apocalypse world where woman has inherited the Earth. Four women have come up to Scotland for the cleaner air after all other human life was almost annihilated. They’ve taken refuge in the last pub left standing, in an obliterated Edinburgh. With personal frustrations running high and intense the tensions between the quartet steadily growing, humanity could be taking its last breath.One woman embraces world destruction as a chance for her to be in control. While words like democracy and meritocracy are banded around she still feels in a position to requisition the essential supplies that were liberated from Anne Summers. Another is the spiritual one, worshipping a range of pagan female deities and making friends with cockroaches. Keeley is still living the life of a self obsessed beauty queen, chatting up pictures of dead men and conversing freely with a pair of hair straighteners. The fourth woman has achieved the ultimate, and found a man. Who they then decide to hunt. Will nothing come of it, will humanity repopulate or will the last man on earth be so unappealing as to still never get laid. This is a good comedy show offering plenty of laughs from the quirky comedienne. It’s free so you’ll always be getting more than you bargained for, even if its not comedy that provides a laugh a minute. Very funny characterisations and observations are delivered in a slick and strong performance that’ll make you think, ‘c’est la vie’, to the end of the world.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
