How crazy can life get when friends spend Thanksgiving together on what could be their last day on Earth?  If there was ever a time to “put it all on the table,” this is it!  Despite an asteroid a quarter the size of the moon speeding toward Earth, Joann Monroe goes about preparing the perfect holiday dinner, expecting no one to cancel.  Her husband, Neil, glued to the television by the developing news, isn't so sure.  But when all the guests arrive on schedule—the event explodes into a flurry of emotions, attacks, and retaliations.  The soon-to-be-announced almost-engagement of Steve and Shelley turns into a nightmare with the unanticipated arrival of Steve's not-so-marriage-supportive mother, Freida, a phone call by Steve to his ex-girlfriend, and a blow-up between already married Gary and Deidre, ruining dinner for everyone and somehow leading to Steve waking up naked next to Deidre on the couch the next morning—with his pants in the kitchen freezer.  And although it turns out that Joann detests turkey and all its culinary relatives, a mad scramble to save food for the possible end of the world creates an appropriate apocalyptic backdrop for an impromptu wedding, performed by a young man from “The Eternal Light Society,” who just happens to come knocking at the door to rescue a few more souls.  Your audience will thoroughly identify with these characters, and laugh out loud, when a looming global cataclysm brings out people's worst—and also their best. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
