Atheism and the End of the World smash into each other at Boston Playwrights' Theatre and the fallout is Ultimate Things, an evening of two darkly funny one-act plays that take a hard look at religious dogma.

Secondly, Hellancholy follows an atheist TV producer who can't write a new episode without being tormented by visions grounded in the religious fears of her childhood. Each written by up-and-comer Carl Danielson, Ultimate Things will have you laughing and thinking in equal doses.
