Synopsis


As technology continues to consume us, there are more and more places to hide.


This brand new play asks at what point does reality come knocking on its virtual sibling's door?


"Escape get away.


Just remember to stop before you forget where you are"

Sometimes things just go missing.


And when the thing closest to Luna goes missing, she finds the perfect place to hide.

Comet Canyon.


A virtual landscape that she understands.


A place where pixels allow her to be whoever she wants to be.


A place where your friends are usernames and where the young can finally take some control.
