The show that we're about to do is a story about the future. The story that we're going to tell is the story of us; the story of our future. It's a story that we are going to tell together.
I hope that sounds okay. From the makers of Five Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist and the accident did not take place comes an act of communal storytelling. There's a baby born in a lighthouse, a man on fire in the middle of the desert, two lovers reunited in a ruined city, there's a dying spaceship on the edge of a black hole.
we were promised honey! is a hopeful, hopeless prophecy for humankind. A meditation on inevitability, despair and how we tell a story when we already know the end.
