I had the fortunate opportunity to witness the reading of this incredible new play at the Kennedy Center MFA Workshop 2018. It was a rare in its ability to address the impact of climate change while also evoking the simple beauty of human love and interaction. I love the potential of the casting and the playfulness and humor juxtaposed to the serious dramatic themes. ”

I love this play and can't wait to see it produced. This story of two people brought together by climate and cirumstance is Beckett-like in its approach to communication, setting the stage for two remarkable performances. This is your play if you'd like a dark comedy about the connections humans make and break, and the magic that can result from a bond beween humans. (Oh, and a rabbit.) ”
Tuesday, Weeks, A rabbit – a puppet
About the characters. Tuesday and Weeks have been intentionally written gender neutrally, however, neither should be cis-gender male. Both characters could be any race, however, they should not both be white. They can be played by women, gender queer, trans*, masc of center, femme of center, and/or androgynous folkx. Considering they are the only representatives of this world, they should represent, as much as they can, a difference in body type, age range, race and ethnicity, able- ness, gender expression, etc.
A note about the rabbit. The rabbit is a puppet. The puppet does not have to be a realistic representation of a rabbit. My favorite puppet was a simple articulated, cardboard puppet.
