A comet threatens all life on Earth, and the residents of Hampstead, England put their affairs in order. Very politely.

About this event

Christopher: Buck up, blue-eyes! You’re not afraid to die, surely!

Millicent: I know it’s very silly of me, but I do hate being killed by a blue comet.

Playwright Eden Phillpotts brightened the world with a genteel comedy about the end of the world, seen through the eyes of two very English clans, the Parsons and the Bedales. The play has never been presented in America... until now.

We present a staged reading national premiere of The Blue Comet on Tuesday August 23, at 7 PM in the Community Room at Madison's Midtown Police Station. Admission free and open to the public.
