Out in the mountains of West Virginia, a new contaminated parasite strain of virginia creeper is infesting the landscape. After a fateful hunt of a rare golden stag, a cryptozoologist searching for Mothman and a doomsday prepper on a quest for vengeance collide in their respective paths. Can the pair find common ground, or is the impending climate crisis about to meet their ends? A play about nothing, something, and everything all at once.
