"Things change? Well I'm sick of change. Change is a thief."

30 years old, living in the same town all his life and trapped in a dead-end job where it seems like he can’t open his mouth without offending a younger colleague. Everything seems to be changing but him.

Obsessed with the past but unable to face it, he longs for a simpler time of pokemon cards, school nicknames and stable pronouns. But nostalgia is always dangerous…

A personal tragedy is about to force him to re-examine his past and face up to some uncomfortable truths.

A dark, comic monologue about ancient history and the lies we tell ourselves.
