or 'It’s Not the End of the World'

“The end of the world needn’t be the end of the world!” 

Join the last survivors of the global nuclear catastrophe in Lotta Quizeen’s fully equipped underground stronghold. She’s got recipe tips for tinned goods and dating strategies to repopulate the planet. No need to panic, Lotta is in control!

...Or is she? There's been a lot of stress lately, what with the troubles between her son Hugo and his wife... Perhaps locking oneself in a boutique bunker may not be the sanest of ideas, even though the world around her is falling apart. 

Inspired by current global issues and events, from geopolitical threat to #MeToo, Serena Haywood's gripping and hilarious piece explores what happens when a loving mother, who's usually always in charge, realises that she’s failed to protect the people who need her the most.  

After launching of The Kindness Revolution (2015) in Pull Your Socks Up Britain, Lotta stood as Independent candidate in the seat of Putney. Now, fresh from her anti-Brexit campaigning, Mrs Quizeen's latest episode, directed by Lou-Lou Mason, explores our complicity to the abuses of power and patriarchy in everyday life. 

Strap yourselves in aboard this touching dystopian battleship and discover what you might be compelled to do for love and survival.

“I found myself having to take a step back behind the fourth wall and remind myself that I was actually watching a show and a character – one that says far more about modern British life than I ever expected”

“Lotta has embodied all of this into her completely flawless show... It is the perfect British comedy.”
