Syd has been missing for 22 days, but that’s Syd, right? Syd is a flake. It’s not like he’s dead, right? You don’t think he could…? Syd is, in fact, dead, which you learn within the first ten minutes of this play. Yet, his roommates are a little more concerned with making up his portion of the rent until they realize that all three of them are a little more connected than they originally believed. Smoke pokes and prods us to consider how people really think about us. Join us for a meditation about who one person really is.
