From the author’s website:

Sixteen year old Rachel Stein is having a bad year. Her father hasn’t changed out of his pajamas since 9/11. Her mother has begun a close, personal relationship with Jesus. Her new neighbor, a sixteen-year-old Elvis impersonator, has fallen for her hard. And the Apocolypse is coming Wednesday. Her only hope is that Stephen Hawking will save them all.

“…rapturously funny play about a family trying to survive in a world hurtling toward Armageddon, proves that the right playwright can inspire healing laughter in even the most sobering subjects.” – The Miami Herald

“…thought-provoking, not a little disquieting and seriously, encouragingly funny. Laufer’s originality in expressing her ideas is impressive. Highly recommended.” – CityBeat Arts and Entertainment

“End Days directly pits science, religion and suburbia, but it’s not an attack on any of them. There’s not a trace of mockery in these extraordinary performances, each tinged with compassion, humor and heartbreak. Laufer is clearly a major new voice” – Denver Post
