The Berserker Residents, a site-specific performance company based in Philadelphia, is getting rave reviews for their wacky production of The Annihilation Point, currently running at Abrons Arts Center. The show is based on a time-traveler, Astronaut Z (Bradley Wrenn), who is the only human survivor of the annihilation point (“the big A.P.”), an apocalyptic event that took place on Dec. 12, 2012. Z and two alien crew members (Dave Johnson and Justin Jain) have come back to “time-jump the audience into the future, past the end of man.”
The production is directed by Dan Rothenberg, of Pig Iron, and created by Berserker member, Tim Sawicki. The group has turned the lower level of the Abrons Arts Center into a time-travel transit station and fun for all apparently ensues. The Annihiliation Point runs through Sunday, Jan. 16th. Tickets are $15. Showtimes vary.
