It’s 2024. Four years ago, everyone over the age of 20 disappeared from the planet. No one knows why. Then it happened again.

On the Altierra compound in Texas, young T dreams of the internet returning so she can be a Youtuber and document her generation. When a crisis expels a group, she joins the exiles on a trek across the broken land. This group faces constant danger as they search for safe-harbor - and possibly the answer to the question of what happened — at the rumored New Eden. This is a play about what happens when the young are left to deal with the disasters in a world they didn’t create.

Along the way, the crew experience a strange and yet recognizable landscape. They encounter an authoritarian farm, anarchist Firestarters, feral children, Sad Disneyland, and ruined hometowns.

There are moments of intensity and plenty of humor in this play that's about climate change, social change, coming-of-age, immigration, and the current moment. Notably, this play features a resolution that brings an adult audience member into the play.

This play can be produced with as few as nine actors or many more of any gender.
