This production is a scripted reading of the show.
One woman lists real and imagined memories of life on Planet Earth, shifting between personal memories and world events unfolding over a century. What results is a gradual accumulation of the tragic and joyful moments shaping global consciousness, and the tentacular connections that make a life.
