In Piehole's SKI END, an abandoned ski shop becomes the center of the universe. A group of 30-whatever urbanites finds itself stuck in a flood-damaged building with a makeshift skate ramp, dead birds, and the tattered banner of a final blowout sale. From these clues they ritualistically reanimate a bygone world of Ski, until they incite a cosmic force. Rising from the ruins of economic and environmental dread, Piehole’s SKI END examines chronic patterns of apocalyptic despair and what it takes to face The Sublime.

“…the production, directed by Tara Ahmadinejad at the New Ohio Theater, has a sweet, eccentric charm that’s most powerfully felt when the cast members start singing in unison.” —The New York Times
