About This Book

They were all in the pub when the explosion happened. Louise wakes up to find herself trapped with Mark, who has saved her life. Mark is always prepared for the worst and has everything he thinks they will need to survive; tinned chilli, Dungeons and Dragons and a knife - now all they need to do is to wait until it's safe to go outside. Can they survive the attack? Can they survive each other? After The End received its world premiere at The Traverse Theatre in August 2005.

LOUISE: Finish your sentence, then.
MARK: Why don’t you just try it?
LOUISE: Because I fucking hate it.
Pause.
MARK: We have to do something.
LOUISE: Not that.
MARK: We have to keep occupied, do things.
LOUISE: Not Dungeons and fucking Dragons. Do you play that?
MARK: No, when I was a kid –
LOUISE: Do you dress up like a pixie or something?
MARK: No, no, for God’s sake, Louise and I mean you don’t dress up you just, look, I’m just, it’s just a suggestion because we –
LOUISE: Why haven’t you got any other games?
MARK: It was built in the eighties. It’s an eighties game.
LOUISE: You brought it two years ago, why aren’t there games from other eras, why aren’t there some nineties games?
MARK: It seemed sort of – what nineties games?
LOUISE: Pictionary.
MARK: fitting, it sort of fitted with, you know, the, the
LOUISE: Apocalyptic
MARK: nuclear, because, no not, because when I was a kid

MARK: You can try the radio in one hour then.
LOUISE: I don’t have a watch.

LOUISE: I don’t want to be a fucking elf!
MARK: You could be a dwarf.
I think you’re being negative.
Beat.
Yes. Yes, actually, it bothers me. But what am I going to do about it?
Beat.
LOUISE: Sorry.
MARK: It’s only been three days
LOUISE: Feels like three years.
MARK: We have to look after each other.
LOUISE: I know.
I know. I’m sorry, Mark.
Pause.
MARK: When I was a kid I used to love it. Alright, yes, I’m admitting –
Escape or something, I don’t…
I associate it with caravans. I’ve never been in a caravan. I think it was because a mate of mine used to go on holiday in a caravan and we never went on holiday and I always thought what it’d be like to be in a caravan. He’d always tell me stories of getting a girlfriend in this caravan –
LOUISE: This isn’t a caravan.
And I’m not your girlfriend.
Silence.
MARK: Would you do it if Francis asked you?
LOUISE: Oh, for God’s sake
MARK: No, I’m just wondering
LOUISE: No you’re not
MARK: I am
LOUISE: You’re not because you’re mental and that’s a loaded question designed to feed into your paranoia about Francis.
MARK: I don’t have paranoia about Francis and this is, actually this is just like Jess’ party.
Beat.
LOUISE: Jess’ party?
MARK: Yes.
LOUISE: Jess’ party?
MARK: Yes.
LOUISE: Why are you bringing up Jess’ party?
MARK: Because –
LOUISE: What the fuck has Jess’ party got to do with anything?
MARK: Because at Jess’ party, at Jess’ party you were taking the piss
