THE END by Control Group Productions

•  •  •  • 

THE END turns a traditional civic bus tour into a cultural adventure on an apocalyptic school bus, that will change how you see San Diego forever. This interactive expedition takes audiences on a ride through a city transformed by escalating climate catastrophe, inexorably rolling toward the brink of collapse.

Redeveloped for San Diego through dialogue with local environmental justice and climate action organizations, including San Diego Coastkeeper, Climate Action Campaign, Environmental Health Coalition, and Surfrider Foundation.

Performances of THE END on Saturday April 29 and Sunday April 30 have had to be canceled due to mechanical issues with the bus on which the performance takes place. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

This show is in high demand! Although maximum capacity has been reached, we recommend you check in periodically leading up to the Festival for any inventory updates. If you reserved tickets and can no longer attend, please let us know in advance so someone else can enjoy this experience. Contact Patron Services at (858) 550-1010 or [email protected]

Patron Notes

Your reservation is not guaranteed if you are late. Audience participation is required. This roundtrip bus experience requires mild physical activity. Ages 12+.

Mobility considerations: Passengers will board and deboard a bus 5 times and walk a total of ½ mile outside the bus, including gravel areas and mildly uneven terrain. The bus is equipped with a wheelchair lift, but requires advance notice to prepare seating, please contact Patron Services.

Sensory and Emotional considerations: The event involves loud sounds, tight spaces, urgent departures, and depictions of violence and societal collapse. The event invites verbal and physical participation by audience members. Audience members may choose how to participate, and may notify crew in advance about any desired accommodations.

General considerations: This event runs 110 minutes from start to our return to Rady Shell. This event leaves the festival site and returns at the end of the performance.
