Synopsis

Shirley arrives in a place far removed from the rules of the World. A place where she is assigned a new personality. A place where she plays games, watches animals, regulates her emotions, and devotes herself to rigorously doing nothing.

“lots of people dream of a place like this
you’re very lucky
so many people want out of the world
and yet
nobody wants to die”

Warning

Characters in the play discuss suicidal thoughts.
