This is a story about the end of the world. Even more, it's a story about the end of the things that make the world meaningful, and how those things get lost. It isn't a story of survival--it's a story of bare existence, stripped of anything like heroism or triumph.

It's Ball Peen Hammer, actor/playwright Adam Rapp's commentary on the end.

From official release/information:

Product Description:

The world is dying.  After most of the city succumbed to the plague, Welton's staying inside -- permanently.  But hiding in his claustrophobic basement room -- the only place he knows is safe -- exacts a gruesome price, and he becomes part of a collective that's killing children.  Infected with the plague himself, with no way to find the woman he loves, Welton takes refuge in apathy -- until someone knocks on his door. 
Ball Peen Hammer gives us a window into life in a half-deserted apartment building in a time of raw love, sacrifice, fear, and death.
