About Laws of Thermodynamics: When the end of the world came, it was not by fire or flood. It wasn’t Martians or climate change or a meteor from space. It wasn’t even revenge. Instead the end of the world was something much quieter, much softer, and much more melancholic. Now, so near to the end, one man finds himself in a place he said he’d never be with people he’d never imagined meeting – playing out the last mysterious chapter of his life in haunting parallel to the sombre fate facing our world. Scorpio Theatre’s Artistic Director, Aaron Conrad, directs a night of theatre certain to stick with you long after the curtains have closed and all the lights have gone black.
