Yev is a hermit living in a remote region of the Siberian Taiga, the sole survivor of a family who fled civilization for fear of religious persecution. Matthew, a biology student who’s curious about her solitary life, begins a correspondence but soon discovers that Yev is not entirely alone. Acted by Alison Darcy and written by Joseph Shragg, the play mobilizes complex, multi-perspectival storying telling to slowly unearths the truth of these relationships forged amid seclusion.
