"And endlessly fascinating play about the future and the past, given a meticulous, compelling production..."

-The Slotkin Letter

For Both Resting and Breeding

World Premiere

Written by Adam Meisner

In the year 2150, humans have become gender neutral and use the pronoun ‘Ish’ to identify themselves. This story centres around two historians, ISH56 and ISH62, who want to transform an old residence for the upcoming sesquicentennial. As the museum is being created, members of the group become too enamored with their gendered counterparts and eventually start to re-enact the dangerous behaviours of their ancestors.

Running Time: 135 minutes

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
