The Last Quiz Night on Earth will visit the Burntwood Pub, Buckley later this month. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Produced by Box of Tricks Theatre, The Last Quiz Night on Earth is an immersive comedy with a twist, set the night before an apocalyptic event. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

An asteroid is heading toward the earth, what would you do? Head to your local for a pub quiz, of course! ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Landlady Kathy invites audiences to the last quiz night on earth with quizmaster Rav. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He’s the host with the most, but with time ticking some unanticipated guests turn up out of the blue. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Expect the unexpected to the bitter end and plenty of drama. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Offering audiences a very different experience of live performance. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Combining pub quiz with live performance, writer Alison Carr wanted to create a performance people would feel safe to get involved with. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

She explains: “I wanted to combine the known and the unknown, the safe and the downright terrifying.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“My vision was to create something that audiences don’t just sit and watch but are part of – but not in a scary way. A quiz is something we can all do – whether we’re a general knowledge expert or the neatest so we can do the writing!” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

An asteroid is heading towards Earth, so what would you do? Head to your local pub for a quiz of course! ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The explosive preapocalyptic comedy – which was cancelled midway through its 2020 tour due to Covid19 restrictions – is being staged in urban and rural venues across the country, including theatres, village halls, community spaces and local pubs – enabling the play to connect with audiences right at the heart of their communities. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
