PAULA. I see all kinds. Some of them are pregnant or already have a baby. Some of them are eager to get their first job and be on their own. Some of them are running from something. Many of them are tired. It’s amazing how people can run when they are tired. How fast they can go. So fast they forget what was behind them. What was happy, what was there. The color of it all. Until they can’t see it anymore. And it’s gone. Like it was never there. These girls—they run so fast that they crash right into me—I mean they really hit me. And they startle me sometimes. And when I collect myself and I look at them…for a second they have this look across their face—and they are sweating—really sweating—wet with something of hope…It happens so quickly, by the time they catch their breath and wipe their forehead, usually they’ll pull some hair behind their ear. When they look at me—I mean really look at me. Their faces drop, and turn to dread, because I’m tired.
Paula is tired of living—Will wants more guns—David wants a boyfriend—Madison wants to keep her baby out of foster care—and Vicente’s dog won’t stop barking! Everyone is busy—and everyone can’t seem to see Matthew, until it’s too late. There is something in the walls here, something in the buildings and the yards and the trains. Something in the way they look at each other, something in the way they want. And run. And everyone is running from Matthew.
In a crumbling and surreal world, 6 characters fight to understand why they left Matthew behind.
