A true story told by the subconscious. Chronicling two years' of dreams-really-dreamt, Orchid Receipt Service follows the relationship of Monte and Davey--two transmasculine people in their late twenties--as they drift into and beyond a breakup. In documenting the playwright's dream-attempts to make a parting real, the play offers a record of the stages and symbols that a psyche moves through as it learns to let go of another.
