    Show And Tell

    A city. Just like this. Right now. A teenage girl boils up in rage in a toilet cubicle. A finance worker preaches doom in a busy train station. An absurd coke-addled celebrity races through town on a mission. A paranoid stoner stares blankly at the endless disasters on the TV news. In just one moment, all their worlds will end. 

    Multi award-winner Kieran Hurley weaves a picture of a familiar city at its moment of destruction, asking what we would do if we found ourselves at the end of our world as we know it.
