About the show

INTAR and Radio Drama Network's new play is a southwest "femmetasia" in which an ad agency, The Rest, struggles to stay afloat in a new competitive media market.  More…

As they get ready to accept their new client, Alleviate (or "the forgetting pill"), members of the agency question the moral implications of selling the drug, while a bereaved mother undergoes trial for it. A frontier futura funk piece with elements of noir.
