Tim Mooney, of “Lot o’ Shakespeare” and “Breakneck Hamlet” returns for his third Rogue appearance, leaving behind tales of the distant past, to jump ahead to the looming existential comedy awaiting us all at the tail end of climate change.

From his lonely bunker, the last man on Earth plays out his own theatre of the absurd to the scattered remnants of a vast, empty planet. Realizing there may not be anybody left listening, Tim turns his attention to those corners of the universe that may yet be picking up radio waves, sharing lessons in how NOT to end up like we did! Along the way, he dreams up his own radical collection of “Ten Commandments” for whatever Klingons or Vulcans might still be out there listening!

Pathetic and hilarious, “Man Cave” is a rallying cry screaming out into the darkness: “FIVE STARS: Even the most skeptical among us cannot help but hear the truth.” (Global News) “Al Gore replaced by William H Macy, with a lot more swagger and humor than the former vice president could ever manage!” (Orlando Sentinel) “Smart and funny.” (Edmonton Journal) “Darkly humorous, richly filled…” (The Pitch KC)

This is how the world ends: not with a bang, but a few final stabs at last-minute gallows humor. It’s the performance of a lifetime… the one where we all hope the last joke’s not on us…!

    So good, so smart, and a master class in one-man show panache. Don’t miss it!

    We loved it. We appreciated all the sci-fi nods and the physics theory. The show was funny, compelling, and a bit sad. Plus the performer is a super nice guy!

    A prolix and mostly tame midwesterner outlines the personal and group failings which are rapidly leading to earth sneezing off its human fleas. Mooney admits he ain’t done no better than the rest of us. The show flirts with gloom, but Mooney is right to put religion, idiosyncratic human emotion and the chimeras of irresponsibility and escapism in the forefront of his meditations. It’s great, really. He’s god and you get to be Moses receiving his ten commandments at the end of the show, since climate change and overpopulation will make monotheism look like a forgettable trailer to the blockbuster horror flick to come. Give his show a shot.

    Tim Mooney has created an engrossing, funny and intelligent show that delivers a gut-punch to the reality of climate change. It’s a roller coaster ride of emotions as Tim tries reach out into the universe to find life. It’s a great hour of theater and I highly recommend this show.

    More shows like this should be produced, about where we’re heading by burning fossil fuels. This topic needs to be at the top of our cosciousness untill we have acccomplished our transition to a sustainable-fuel economy. The tale of a man who has prepared for the awful heating to come is accompanied by elevan commandments, copies of which were distriubuted the audience at the end of the show, pointing us in the right direction with things we should be doing now to get away from excess fossil fuel burning.
