Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers is mounting the world premiere production of “The Last Show.” The one-man show was written, and is being performed by actor, playwright and screenwriter Derek Lively.

The play transports audience members into an illegal underground nightclub in a city where all forms of art and public social gatherings have been banned, thus making the audience complicit. Lively portrays an artist risking it all to perform for the first, and last time in front of his dying mother. Without giving away more, Lively says the play resonates with our current environment.

Ahead of opening night, we get a preview with Derek Lively and the director of this production and Conspiracy Theatre Founding Artistic Director Bill Taylor.
