Perrie’s comedy was inspired by the song, “The Temptation of Adam” by Josh Ritter and is about two very different people learning to connect as human beings as they sit in an underground bunker awaiting instructions regarding the “final missile” during World War III.

Big Red Button stars Patrick JT Flanagan (Detroit) as Adam and Carmel Inez (Inkster) as Marie. The production team includes Luna Alexander (Ferndale), Sarah Drum (Westland), Gwen Lindsay (St. Clair Shores), and Amy Schneider (Detroit). Playwright Michael Perrie Jr. is from Baltimore, MD and began writing plays while working toward his bachelor’s degree in acting from Towson University.
