The comedy begins as musical prodigy Meg Meadows accidentally drops an air-conditioning unit out of her window, crushing someone on the street below, causing her to lose the ability to hear music. Meanwhile, after Keb’s brother is killed by a falling air-conditioner in the middle of their street-dance routine, Keb loses his grasp of language and begins speaking gibberish. Meanwhile, Emily Piper, in a fit of rage, accidentally throws a javelin over a mountain range. Meanwhile, Helen, on a stroll in the woods, is suddenly nailed to a tree by a flying javelin. Paramedics say she’ll be fine, but she’s going to have to spend the rest of her life nailed to her tree. In this one act show, lives and stories collide to create a truly unique mesmerizing tale!
