Synopsis: In this new play by Maddie Radcliffe, everything's fine until it's not. All Alex wants is keep their porch plants alive, and all Jordan just wants is to visit their friend. An otherwise uneventful day plunges into surreal chaos when an ungodly amount of dead birds plummet from the sky and blanket Alex's yard. What is this? A freak illness? A government conspiracy? Something...darker? Just when is a good time to talk about what happened? When an apocalypse seems nigh, your choices, past, present, and future, come into sharp relief.
