Know Theatre of Cincinnati


Bankers by Brant Russell.

Given the condition of the world, I feel it’s important people
treat each other with dignity.

Things aren’t great in Bialystock – for one thing, the world’s ended, and the residents are pretty sure they’re the only town left. Then it gets worse: strangers arrive, tensions rise, and a battle for the resources the town protects seems inevitable. Faced with the destruction of all they hold dear, the people of Bialystock must decide what’s worth saving in the apocalypse … and in the world that comes after.

This world premiere dark comedy from local playwright Brant Russell shows us a world broken beyond repair and explores how we might find a way to mend it.
