Veronica, already scarred by too many failed relationships, finds the world a frightening place. Skylab, an American space station that came crashing down to earth, in particular, haunts and enrages her. So, she has committed suicide and is now in what she expected to be heaven but is

instead something called the Bardo (the netherworld in Tibetan Buddhism), and the forces there keep trying to make her reincarnate. So far she's thwarted these return visits to earth with a sort of "spiritual otherworldly emergency brake system" she seems to have, but when she is finally reincarnated, will she learn her lesson? This is a play about facing one's fears. even if it means returning to a world that finds new ways to terrify every day.
