In the last years of his life, the aging American writer Ambrose Bierce became an obsessive collector of anecdotes about people who inexplicably vanish. In the year 1903, Bierce himself disappeared, most likely in Mexico, and was never heard from again. In this mysterious and funny long one act, we find Mr Bierce on a mysterious train to an obscure location, where he will encounter Pancho Villa, Mark Twain, William Randolph Hearst, Jack London, H.

He also encounters one Dr Hern, who offers to him a terrifying theory about where people go when they vanish inexplicably, and Bierce moves through a journey of increasingly bizarre nightmares towards his ultimate destiny.
