The end is near -- or is it? -- in the comedy "Awaiting the Apocalypse". In a small, dingy diner called Smithereens, Mort, Solomon and Sylvester believe themselves to be three of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. They wait, not so patiently, for the fourth horseman to arrive and start the end of the world. That's when Cameron, a young, single guy, stumbles into the diner, chasing a girl he's too cowardly to talk to, and unwittingly gets drawn into the old men's plans for Armageddon. Between laughs, Jonathan M. Vick's work asks some serious questions, like "What is the apocalypse? Is it fire and brimstone and deities passing judgment? Or is it just you and me giving up?"
