Setting and Synopsis: An abandoned theater in New Mexico, 25 years from now, 3 years after the viral pandemic Erasure.  As a result, everyone has some degree of memory loss, and people are less connected to one another.  Wyatt and Meridian, Shakespearean actors and former lovers, drifted apart at the start of the pandemic, and Wyatt has been searching for Meridian ever since.
