This awe-inspiring, world premiere production starring Theatre by the Blind actors doing the improbable with great skill and gifted musicians with autism from Rex & Friends, featuring illusions created by Magic Castle magician Dominik Krzanowski, challenges conventional expectations about the capabilities of individuals who live without sight, struggle with movement, or have difficulty understanding the complexities of social interactions.
‘Point of Extinction’ takes place 100 years in the future after a super volcano has destroyed more than a third of Earth’s population, with the fallout rendering many of the survivors disabled. In the United States of America, the new government tries to rebuild while resources are running low for the entire population, with the entire world quickly reaching the breaking point. When President Geneva Winters proposes a law forcing the disabled to take an experimental serum she claims will cure them, the suspicious opposition begins to question whether her intentions are pure or sinister. Will they be able to organize in time to save many innocent lives, proving it’s never too late in life to do the right thing?
