In a darkened room centuries from now, five women show you something they shouldn’t: The final
moments broadcast on 21/12/12, just before the apocalypse. There are no reruns, there is no next
episode, this is the final scene and the closing credits are drawing near. This Is A Reconstruction is a funny and earnest exploration of how we experience the news that disaster is (probably) imminent. Tune in, sit back and join us for the end of the world. An apocalypse is a terrible thing to waste.
