What if you had the chance to rewrite history? Erik’s world is thrown into free-fall when he’s pulled into a wondrously bizarre time-traveling journey by Agent 701 (aka his now-sentient PrEP pill). Landing into the AIDS epidemic of the 80s, Erik finds himself in a race against history to save a life lost decades ago. From award-winning playwright Yilong Liu comes a contemporary queer fantasia that examines the ghosts of our past and the hopes for our future.

“I think home is somewhere you can let your guard down, somewhere you can be messy, weird, naked (at least emotionally), as quiet as you want, or as loud as you want, somewhere you don't have to pretend or perform, and most importantly, somewhere you feel you belong. NCTC has that sense of intimacy for artists to want to be honest with their work and themselves.” -  Yilong Liu
