A "rock opera in 3 acts", comprised of the following characters:
SHINY: A former artist of great renown. Also known as 'Zero' or 'Glass', presently late 70's in age. Who, in being judged a present danger to global and civil society, has been permanently exiled into space.
JUNE: Ardent and longtime admirer of Shiny. Whom through illicit bribery has placed herself alongside Shiny's craft; albeit at a distance where she remains unknown and unseen. In age, a generation or so younger than Shiny.
THE SERAPHIM: A Greek chorus of celestial beings.
OSIRAH: A non-binary, socially conscious teen. Part of the facile hacker group 'Hopus Dei'.
NIGHTHAWK: A young male. Also Osirah's closest partner in 'Hopus Dei'
DR. AESH: Legendary hacker and devotee of psychedelic journeying, plus public contrarian some 80 years of age.
THE NIGHT WATCHMAN: Sole gatekeeper of 'Dream Dream', the long-shuttered amusement park that has seen better days.
RUBY: Featured performer and automaton of Dream Dream's show pavilion; female in form but programmed anachronistically as a chirpy 1930's chorine.
