But when a major global catastrophic event strikes the planet, their date takes on evolutionary significance and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. Will they survive? What about the fish in the tank? And who is that woman pulling levers and playing the timpani?
Peter Sinn Nachtrieb tackles our fascination with myths about the origins (and end!) of life with this clever, sharp-witted doomsday comedy.
