With almost all the insects gone, the world is beginning to fall apart as crops fail and people struggle to hold on to their ways of life. Cassandra and her brother Alexander are tracking the last monarch butterflies in the world as they head to the west coast. Their path intersects with a small group of people who are hunkering down in a truffle farm preparing for the on-coming collapse of society.

“A remarkable exploration of the environmental impact on our world in this captivating play. With a lovely intersection of magic and nature, the understanding of it all is brought to life in a truly immersive way.” -playwright Cheryl Bear
