The audience, members of the COGG (Chrononauts for the Organization of Global Galvanization) accompany Jane Prime, our narrator, in her time machine to Killian's studio where the whole mess started. A flying clock comes to life, carnies contort, and a thief dressed as a monk sees flying angels instead of bats in his belfry. From an isolated colony in outer space to a post apocalyptic future, an 80's rock concert, to a pirate ship on the high seas, Killian travels the multiverse chasing his own tail. When Killian finally returns to his studio at that pivotal moment, nothing is exactly as it had been. Click here to read more.
