In the distant future the secular world segregates the spiritual to off-grid, gated reservations. On the eve of a government sanctioned apocalypse intended to eradicate the religious colonies, a parent and son have a clash of extremist ideologies with a confused child caught in the middle. Can this estranged family find common ground before their hour of oblivion?“No son, not a false God, just a new kind of God for a new era.”

Past Productions by Herbert the Cow:

Herbert the Cow Productions is the creative vehicle of Fredericton based writer/director Corenski Nowlan. Pasteurized (founded) in 1999, in our 25 year history we have staged 16 full length productions, including 11 full length originals, presented 7 Reader’s Theatre shows, 6 shorter-than one act scripts, co-produced 6 plays with the co-operation of other companies, and had the Herbert logo plastered on a bunch of other stuff including: zines, chapbooks, poetry readings, writers’ workshops, and art shows. Low budget. High emotional intensity. Theatre that breaks the fourth wall, abolishes conventions, and shatters hearts!
