More than a thousand years in the future, small bands of people live and trade in the ruins of a lost and nearly forgotten civilization while a semi-mythical city from that ancient time orbits above. Two of these clans, Little Belaire and Dr. Boot's List, survive partly by bartering very special products that only they can supply.
Rush That Speaks, a young man of Little Belaire, falls in love with a girl of Dr. Boot's List, but the call of clan identity is stronger than love for Once A Day and she leaves Little Belaire to return to her own people. After searching for and finding her again, Rush is initiated into the strange ritual which binds Dr. Boot's List together, but he learns that even this is not enough to keep her love. Overcome with sadness, Rush returns to his home, but on the way he meets a messenger from The City In The Sky who offers him a compelling gift the chance to live forever with them in their city circling high above the world.
The story of Rush That Speaks and his strange destiny is told in dialog, song, and dance with a large cast of characters and the backing of a full rock ensemble. Evermore is loosely based on the novel Engine Summer by John Crowley.
