What would you do if you were the last man on earth, but not SURE if you were the last man on earth? What sort of messages would you send out to your imagined fellow “last men?” And how long would you wait for a reply? Failing all of this, what else might you possibly do? Following years of classical Renaissance events, this year’s Tim Mooney Rep production jumps into the landscape of an unknown future, with Man Cave, a One-Man Sci-Fi Climate Change Tragicomedy! Mooney projects ahead into the near-future result of an Earth that has been driven to extinction! Audiences are calling it “Wonderful and terrifying… becoming more relevant with each day that passes.” From the thick irony of gallows humor, Man Cave strikes an urgent chord as the “last man on earth,” burrowed into a “Hobbit home,” realizes that there may not be anyone out there listening. He turns his aim toward warning whatever far corners of the universe may still be out there receiving radio signals. A stirring rallying cry for saving the planet, Man Cave walks a line that draws chortles and laughs in the face of the deadly future that looms before us all.
