From Amy Gijsbers van Wijk: My two years at Carnegie Mellon University are culminating in the New Works Series production of my play, The Alternate Possibilities of Our Past and Future History with Particular Regard to the Identification of the Eastern Puma and the Corps of Discovery.
In a desert world that has collapsed in the wreckage of climate change, Lewis is a topographer. Lewis secretly wants a museum more than anything in the world. Secretly hoards objects she finds buried in the dirt, and hides them from her eco-engineering girlfriend, Clark. At the site of pre-apocalypse ruins, two men find Lewis digging away in the desert, and they just won’t stop asking her for directions and calling her “Sacajawea.” Whatever that means.
Tickets are free and all shows are open to the public.

This piece is a current semi-finalist for the O’Neill Conference 2016.
