Don’t mind dinner—he’s just defrosting.
— Brady from Hour of Lead

Full-Length Post-Apocalyptic Drama, no Intermission
2M, 1W

It's the dawn of a new ice age as Brady and Zeremiah struggle to stay alive one more day in hopes that the earth will finally melt.

It's one-hundred below. Inside a remote truck stop, the walls are blood-splattered and a man with his throat slit is frozen to a chair. Brady and Zeremiah are struggling to eke out another day of life as they discover an attractive teenage intruder named Ash who may be the answer to their prayers. But, as the ice sheets beneath them start to thaw, so do their alliances.

This play examines the age-old conflict of man versus nature and how against the most extreme odds when battling Mother Nature and the unflappable desire to stay resilient remains.
