In this haunting production, 80 percent of the world's population has been wiped out by a global pandemic. But that still leaves plenty of surviving characters to be brought to life by the versatile Kirsten Potter. The story could be confusing as it continually shifts between scenes before and after the outbreak of the devastating Georgia flu. Principal characters are fading actor Arthur Leander and those whose lives he has touched, for better or worse. Potter ensures that listeners keep the time frames straight and skillfully uses pacing and tone to differentiate the many personalities. She's a riveting guide, equally adept at voicing women and men, young and old. Thanks to author and narrator, this production succeeds at being both bleak and yet hopeful.
