The same company that brought you the 4 STAR 2017 production of The Stock presents The Last 48.

Six marketing associates are forced into competing for spots at a top advertising agency by a mysterious robotic surveillance system. When the workers begin to realize that their pairing together is anything but random, the company’s system of ethics is questioned as the employees struggle to complete their tasks.

The Last 48 fuses NBC’s The Office with Orwell’s 1984 in this bold and raunchy workplace satire.

The Last 48

ArtLaunch Theatre Company—The Rachel Browne Theatre

The performers managed to maintain their over the top characters while also holding true to the ever shifting tone of the script, which did nothing but enhance the overall performance. Every actor had a strong idea of not only who they were, but what they had to loose in this 48 battle for their livelihoods. It’s unfortunate then that I thought there was what seemed to me a major plot hole. Without going into spoilers, what was the reason exactly for that congregation of people? This was an idea that was explored, but never answered, and while overall the show was hysterically funny and well performed, that left me confused. What purpose did leaving this question unanswered serve?

Regardless, as the sell out of this production would indicate, this is not one to miss.

The Last 48—The Rachel Browne Theatre

With more twists & turns than the Red River, “The Last 48” will make mature audiences laugh while questioning their own moral integrity. It is as funny as it is thought provoking and there’s merit to seeing a show that leaves you with something to think about.

Also, are there any other shows that involve a sex leash, conspiracy theories, robots, wrestling, and a love affair? Oh, there are? Well, our venue has really comfy seats too. So there.
