13 Ways the World Ends – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

From press release

Hailing from Midland & Penetanguishene, ON, the creative minds behind Maple Valley Comedy and Silent Heist bring you a brand new comedy revue. After performing to sold out audiences at the 2017 Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival, they are thrilled to be back in Toronto and excited to be a part of the Toronto Fringe Festival for the very first time together, with this comedy revue about the end of the world.

More accurately, the “ends” of the world. Because in this show, the world meets its end in no less than thirteen different ways! Meet the soccer moms who fend off waves of zombie hordes between playdates. Follow a young couple in their date to the Tree Museum, which also comes with free entry to the Bee Museum. Watch as No Sick Days Mary turns a case of the sniffles into a new global pandemic. And join the Johnsons, as they watch the sun go out the way that God intended… as a family, gosh darn it.
