BY WILL CLOSE & JOE VON MALACHOWSKI

A statue rises. A narrative falls apart.

30, still living in the same town, and trapped in a job where he can’t open his mouth without offending a younger colleague. Everything seems to be changing but him. He longs for a simpler time of Pokémon cards, school nicknames and stable pronouns. But nostalgia is always dangerous… With his job under threat of cancellation and a figure from his past returning to haunt him, it might just be time to face up to some uncomfortable truths. 

A tragicomedy about ancient history, recent past and present lies.

Content Warning: Strong language, adult themes and discussion of abuse
