Adventures in New America

Set a few years in the future, Adventures in New America follows the escapades of two mismatched African-New-American best friends — fat, lonely curmudgeon IA and lesbian sneak-thief Simon Carr — who take on a series of increasingly high-stakes heists to get quick cash to pay for IA’s medical treatment while attempting to survive the wilds of New New York City… and a secret cabal of Tetchy Terrorist Vampire Zombies from outer space. Intrigued? Good! Frequently, there will be musical numbers — and radical reflections on our dangerous, beautiful, heart-pounding world.

Aftermath

Welcome to 2016. The threat of war between China and the USA had loomed heavily over the rest of the world. Britain, now a small, insignificant and bankrupt nation, initially, as always, had sided with the USA.  In a car park, half way up Falkland Hill in Fife, a group of people who fled from the riot stricken towns below watch out over the river Forth in horror as Edinburgh is blitzed by a missile attack from the sky.  A devastating chemical attack turns ordinary people into bloodthirsty savages, and Scotland as we know it, changes forever. And now… this is the Aftermath.

Age of the Zombies

One such group of survivors are trying to reach out to anyone who’s still alive… They live in… the Age of the Zombies.

Over the course of 73 years, this discovery of the exoplanet sparks a series of probe and AI missions–all leading to the realization that a new branch of humanity has arisen on Arca-45672.

Dead Earth

When the global pandemic known as The Fall began, the infrastructure of civilization collapsed.  Within a matter of hours, millions were dead and billions more were dying.  Hospitals filled to capacity, transforming from places of healing to houses of death.  Some rare individuals were immune, while others responded to antibiotic treatments.  However, demand far outpaced supply, with treatment only delaying death for most.  Had the plague ended with The Fall, humanity might have recovered, but this was just the beginning.  What followed was The Rise; a horror that would devour the living and consume the Earth.

The country is torn apart by ideological and partisan fanaticism to the point five separatist groups form in an attempt to secede from the United States.
