Have you ever noticed how in apocalypse movies women never seem to menstruate?
Do the scavenging teams even bother to look for sanitary products for the badass women who have survived?
Do survivors even go to the toilet?!
Where does everyone suddenly acquire combat gear and guns? Not everyone is a skilled doctor or a police officer with undercover training.
What about the real people?
Because at the end of the world, not everything stops.
Embers Collective proudly present the second incarnation of their premiere devised work; TAMPOCALYPSE. Follow young screenwriter Mary, as she navigates her first script pitching session with an opinionated film executive. Her world comes alive and we see her characters go on a post-apocalyptic mission to traverse not only this new world, but to survive that time of the month.
Funny, raw and entertaining; this intimate yet bold story chronicles the journey of young women trying to better their world, one period at a time.
We will be collecting donations of various sanitary items (pads, tampons, menstrual cups, liners) throughout the season. These donations will be given to Women’s Refuge.
