The story revolves around the journey of a young woman named Alice
who lives inside the safety of her bunker, terrified of the barren and hostile world Outside.
She is visited regularly by Cliff, who brings her the Clean
she needs to survive in exchange for physical intimacy.
Each the other’s sole human connection, Cliff and Alice find their
tired emotional contract threatened
upon the arrival of Preacher, a volatile young girl,
who exposes Alice to the greater possibilities of the Outside.
Playwright McClain is working closely with the Illyrians
to evolve the World Premiere of this powerful new work.
