One-Man Apocalypse Now

Written and Performed by Chris Davis

Directed by Mary Tuomanen

Sound Design by Adriano Shaplin

Since the beginning of quarantine, Chris has produced three of his solo plays in his living room; One-Man Nutcracker, The Last Emperor of Mexico, and The Presented. This is the fourth, and last production in his series of ‘Living Room Plays.’ Streamed live through Instagram and Facebook, Chris is using these technologies to create a new and dynamic presentation of his previously produced plays. Watching is free, but audiences are encouraged to make donations to his Venmo at Chris-Davis-109.


Imagine Apocalypse Now performed by one actor in 60 minutes, recreating some of the most famous scenes from cinema history through Chris Davis’ unique theatrical lens. Backed by the soundtrack of the movie, Davis explores the heart of darkness through movement, sound, dance, comedy, drama, lunacy, philosophy and more in this high-octane 60 minute tour-de-force, directed by Mary Tuomanen and sound design by Adriano Shaplin.
