Production Description

Casting "Last Night On Earth," a sponsored project of Artspire, a program of The New York Foundation of the Arts. Production states: "A 15 minute action packed thrill ride, that's both funny and frightening with dysfunctional characters who you don't know whether to cheer for, or hope to meet their doom. 'Last Night on Earth' is akin to the drama of "The Walking Dead," the insanity of "The Evil Dead," all with a "Die Hard" sense of humor. 'Last Night On Earth' is the story of Ned Bronson. A washed up Minor League baseball player. Once the pride of "The New Jersey Rebels" this promising power hitter goes to prison for a crime he did not commit. Now out, and with his life and career in ruins Ned goes to work with his brother Bubba at their uncle's motorcycle garage where he is coerced to become an illegal bootlegger in The Appalachian Mountains of New Jersey. During what he believes is supposed to be his welcome home party, Ned is reconnected with his old flame Mistie. Bubba and Mistie finagle Ned to become a part of their backwoods crime syndicate. But the deception soon comes to an end when they are attacked by what used to be the local police department, and are all faced with the unimaginable task of surviving what could be their last night on earth."
