This original play, written as an honors project by U of I senior Virginia Sanders, was inspired by a monument the playwright discovered in Ireland inscribed with the words, 'On this site, in the year ____, nothing happened.' Virginia compares this work in progress to 'a piece of abstract art that has the ability to make a person either laugh or ponder, or ideally to do both.'
