We’re thrilled for ED PINKER who, after recently signing with Simon & How, has landed a leading role in Optimist Creations Top Story.
A meteor the size of LA is about to hit LA, ironically, and in London a couple of friends spend the last seven days of the world on the sofa, watching the news, reinventing chess and rewriting the rules of some of the other games in their universe: generally getting things into perspective; at once paralysed and inspired by the ‘overallness of it all’.
In his first play since Elder Latimer is in Love, Sebastian Michael imagines the countdown to impact of a meteor with the power to extinguish all human life; not as a disaster movie, but as experienced by a couple of ordinary young men, from the comfort of their London flat.
Getting ready, as best they can, to die together, the enormity of what’s about to happen completely overwhelms them, but it also brings out in them a whole burst of creative energy. And so as the Top Story unfolds before their eyes, they inadvertently become its co-authors, while in a dimension far beyond their imagination, their soul-mates-in-spirit are having something of an unexpected ball…
