The Impossibility of Now
A comedy of forgetting and remembering
© 2015

Before the accident, Carl was a successful science writer. But with his ever-expanding knowledge of the world came an expanding darkness and futility. Unbeknownst to everyone, including Miranda, Carl started planning his exit. The secret exit strategy chilled the marriage and Miranda began an exit strategy of her own, one that included Anthony, a sexy pediatric dentist. Anthony is attracted to Miranda primarily because she is so different from his ex who wouldn’t know a lyric poem from a limerick. All participants’ plans are kiboshed by Carl’s amnesia as his reawakening brings with it a wholesale batch of new complications, not the least of which is his terrifying new demeanor: optimistic happy person.
