Birmingham Park Players present, "Blackpool and Parrish" By David Belke
For five millennia Harry Blackpool has been the agent for all Evil on Earth, while Rachel Parrish has represented Good. These implacable foes meet in a private club every twenty five years. With the end of the world scheduled for tomorrow at teatime, they must pass their duties to their oblivious heirs: a mild mannered physical education teacher and an aggressively Bohemian artist. Caught in the middle of their cosmic gamesmanship is an anxious club manager. As the sole representative of humanity, he may be the key to Armageddon's outcome in this fast paced comedy of apocalyptic proportions by the author of "That Darn Plot!" (presented last July by Park Players and given 4 out of 5 stars in it's review by the Birmingham News).
