Roles to be Cast

LAB (leyb): Laborer. Retired orator; domasticated [sic] sophist. Carries an unearthly weight in their hands. Work boots; knit skullcap; purple coveralls cut to resemble the silhouette of a “yokel”— smattered with dirt, sand, dust, and blood from some indeterminable past. Prematurely old. Gender irrelevant.

ANDAM (an’dam): LAB’s latest assembly. The preciface [sic] to new life. Such a good kid, just trying to do right. Doesn’t even know their own strength. Form-confounding purple robe (preferably made from curtain). Unflinchingly young. Gender-unacquainted. Sex inconceivable.

SPEAKER: Head of an unseen collective. Amateur storyteller.

RECEIVERS: Body of an unseen collective. Semi-pro listeners.

  • Character description of age relates to energy levels, disregards natural age.


A Plant is part-clown, part elegy, part-presentation on cultivation. A Speaker presents the story of the last living laborer’s attempt at preparing a future life form to repopulate the planet. Despite a dependence on faulty tools, the laborer, Lab, manages to produce a successful life, Andam. Authorities request to see Andam for a final evaluation, leaving Lab alone to die and Andam alone to live.
