It Just Stopped

This savage comedy of manners explores our relationship to art, globalisation, death, technology, America, Campari, cardboard boxes and slavery

Sewell's play is funny and shocking in turn

It holds the mirror up to the things we value today and asks the questions - what will we value the day the world just stops, and what would we be willing to trade for our own survival?

"To describe Stephen Sewell's dark comedy as a cautionary tale does it scant justice, given the anger and apocalyptic vision driving its mayhem and fun. It Just Stopped is a whimsical, argumentative, satirical and deeply serious play-among Sewell's finest" ~ Bryce Hallett, Sydney Morning Herald

Myth, Propaganda and Disaster in Nazi Germany and Contemporary America

With compelling drive and theatrical daring, we are swept from cocktails at the Guggenheim to the hungry vacuum of Ground Zero

Stephen Sewell demands answers to some of the most urgent questions of our times - where is the line between patriotism and nationalism?

And what happens when the Land of the Free makes such uncompromising statements as, 'You're either with us or against us'?
