It is 2150 in M-City, a society without gender where everyone uses the pronoun ish. When two historians discover an abandoned millennium-era house, they hatch a plan to turn the building into a museum that re-enacts life in the year 2000. The historians gather a group of locals, including a student, an engineer, and a community elder, to restore the building and animate the site for local visitors. Together, the volunteers explore the fashion, furnishing, and family roles of their millennial forebears, all through the lens of binary gender roles. But the project turns risky when one of the historians and the youngest volunteer start to explore illegal sexual acts in secret. When the others discover what they've been up to, they must decide if the project can go ahead or if it threatens to upend the values of their society.

Adam Meisner was born in Moncton, New Brunswick and now lives in Ottawa on the unceded, unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation. Adam's play For Both Resting and Breeding premiered at Talk is Free Theatre in Barrie, Ontario in 2018, and the company toured the play to the Adelaide Festival in Australia in 2020. Adam's writing has appeared in literary journals throughout North America, including The Puritan, Poetry is Dead, Iron Horse Literary Review, Copper Nickel, and Ninth Letter. Adam studied theatre at the University of Toronto and the University of Manchester and holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia.

"An endlessly fascinating play about the future and the past...[Meisner has] a compelling imagination and a smart facility with language that in turn gets us to think about our world and the future he has created." The Passionate Playgoer
