Billy: A Post-Apocalyptic Comedy
Billy is a surreal post-apocalyptic dark comedy, set in a nightmare other America in which young men are born and live inside office buildings, and the elderly sell blood and organs to pay their rent.

Our hero, Ruston, lives in a cubicle with a hole in the floor that might lead to the center of the earth. And he has more questions than answers: Like why is there a horse running around in the hall? And why does his employer alternately mock and sexually assault him? And why do his parents keep calling him Billy?

Ruston's journey takes him through a blighted urban landscape, in which the closest thing he finds to home is the companionship of male prostitutes and drug addicts in a park, and the nearest thing to nature is a sickly tree guarded by a sadistic computer named Calcus.

Inspired by cowboy capitalism and the current economic and housing crisis, Billy examines a queer man's struggle to find a sane existence in a world where everyday people have little control over their own lives.

* A Semi-Finalist selection in the Agnes Nixon new works festival.
