In 2017, playwright Christina Anderson imagined herself in a not-too-distant American future, working 10 gigs just to (barely) get by. When a harrowing experience leaves her disillusioned with an art form she once loved, she turns to her partner Alex and the larger community for refuge. But a surprise commission for a new play reminds her of what she’s lost, and what she must do to heal age-old wounds and reclaim her voice.
