Oscillating between bitingly funny and charmingly heartwarming, this play follows two childhood friends as they navigate the dystopian sprawl of Florida City and the wilds of the Everglades. The play centers on the headstrong Mayar, who relies on both her sense of humor and her close friend, Becca, as she attempts to escape her current surroundings and start a new life outside of Florida City.
