ln After the End Louise wakes up in a fallout shelter, after a nuclear explosion. Mark claims he has rescued her when she left the pub and keeps her under heavy guard. As he imposes on Louise a « role play » which blurs the limits between reality and fiction, Mark proves to be an astounding and quick tempered host. Sometimes the balance of domination between them is reversed. Who's the persecutor, who's the persecuted ? How far will go bath of those two survivors, walled up in their atomic fallout shelter ?

lt's in November 2015, just afer the terrorist attacks in Paris, that Antonin Chalon, Xavier Guelfi and Marie Petiot got together for a first reading out of the text. Even though the event is not to be seen as the main line of this creative work, yet the sudden irruption of an ultra-violent occurence in the middlel of the everyday lite adds a powerful echo to the text by Kelly they had chosen to show today.
