On the night of her boisterous marriage—amid corsages, canapés and Clicquot—Justine quietly falls apart. The world will surely follow suit.

Justine’s sister Claire stages a lavish wedding party at a mansion in the mountains. As the fever dream of the wedding ceremony careens towards disaster, she is drawn to an innocuous red spot in the sky. That spot is the wayward planet Melancholia, on a collision course with Earth.

Lars von Trier’s epic cinematic masterpiece is reimagined for the stage by ground-breaking playwright Declan Greene. Matthew Lutton directs two extraordinary actors—Eryn Jean Norvill and Leeanna Walsman—as sisters in the wake of a wedding at the end of days.
