Trainers or, the Brutal Unpleasant Atmosphere of this Most Disagreeable Season: a Theatrical Essay

Etienne and Montaigne spend six hot years together. Hot like intellectually hot. Or other Hot. Which is my preference. Then, because it's the late 1500s and public health was not yet a thing, Etienne falls gravely ill with dysentery and dies aged 33. Montaigne is just 30 at that point. He lives for another 30 years and never feels that passion again. Hundreds of years in the future The Second American Civil War has transformed the country. And two queer radicals meet in the fallout. But can their desire survive a revolution?
