    Three women in three very different landscapes grapple with the importance of delivering a message.

    1. A meeting of three historical figures

    3. Inside the digital landscape of customer service emails (set to music)

    The play moves laterally, generating momentum as symbols move through the three worlds – a letter, a plastic yard animal, and a yellow Frisbee taking on a mounting significance. Where do things go when they are lost? And when do they come back?
