The Devil and his Minion plot to corrupt the last vestage of Innocence on earth. Underdog Gormless Joe must fight back or loose everything including his one chance at love. Dora Award Winning Keystone theatre brings The Last Man on Earth home to Toronto for a two week run. Created in the Style of a Silent Film, this original piece played to sold out houses and recieved critical acclaim during it's four city Canadian Fringe Festival Tour in 2012.
Touted as "...achingly beautiful and brilliantly creative." by CBC Manitoba and "art pure and simple" by The Hamilton Spectator, Keystone Theatre gives new life to the classic style of physical comedy pioneered by the likes of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. Designed in black, white and shades of grey, The Last Man on Earth pays homage to the Silent Film Style and is performed sans dialogue with only a select few title cards - in both official languages. The voice of the piece is the original score played live by our "...astonishingly nimble on-stage pianist" (Edmonton Journal), Music Director David Atkinson. "The Last Man on Earth" is a theatrical experience not to be missed. It is after all "...a wonderfully concieved and fully realized comedy about The Devil, love innocence and pies" (The Calgary Herald). Who doesn't love pies?
