There are evenings that get out of hand…and then there’s Bringer of Doom. With a surprise visit from her estranged, despised mother and her mother’s young lover on tap, Lotte enlists an alcoholic ex-stand-up comedian, Demetrius, to brutally “roast” the maligned pair at dinner. As the night ensues, however, even darker ulterior motives come to light, and events take a madcap, morbid turn that nobody saw coming. 

Bringer of Doom is a comedy about family, relationships, and existential dilemmas,” said director Mark Koenig. “It will take its audience to an unexpected, satisfying place – laughing all the while – and make you ask yourself, ‘When is it okay to be okay?'”
