(Newly completed and seeking it’s first productions)

how the world ends image

Hawdon’s latest stage comedy, and his most anarchic one.  Is it a farce, or is it a forecast of a Trumpian cataclysm that might well happen?

Forget Covid.  Another Cold War is threatening.  The British government urgently boosts its defence spending, along with other Western nations.  A minor Whitehall unit accidentally gets a boost of several billion pounds intended for the main Defence department.  The egomaniac head of the section refuses to give the money back, and instead blackmails the Government into giving him charge of a new civil defence force.  He then takes it upon himself to challenge the enemy’s nuclear threat with his own Dad’s Army resistance, little realising what he is getting himself and his incompetent team into – let alone the rest of the world.  If it wasn’t so funny it would be terrifying!
