A cross between Alice In Wonderland, The Wiz, and Dante’s Inferno, The Demise is the story of Harry Haller, a young, tormented, wannabe-rock-star who takes a trip uptown through the magical underbelly of a skewed version of NYC in search of Devachan: “the greatest rock club of all time.” Harry is guided on his journey by a mysterious, omnipresent, master-of-ceremonies and meets a variety of provocative and enchanting characters who challenge him to consider a brand new perspective.
On his quest, Harry discovers far more than he bargained for: Himself.
